Week 4 of Advent 2015
If you listen to the media it feels like the world is in a terrible fearful era. But this is not true statistically, nor in reality. The time of Mary and Joseph was much worse. And yet the angel declares "Peace of Earth!" at the time of Jesus' birth. Later Jesus tells his followers to come to him and he will give them rest and peace. The best way for us to find peace is through Sabbath. This teaching works through basis of Sabbath as a part of creation, and proposes each person renounce the consumer identity and embrace the Sabbath.
