This is week two of the Advent Season. Much like Lent, believers would fast and pray from mid-November until Christmas. Originally, it was a time for believers to prepare themselves for baptism, but during the Middle Ages, the focus changed to the Second Coming of Jesus. Only in recent years has the focus changed to the Nativity. 

Last week we looked at hope for the season of advent. In many ways, peace is closely related. All the same stuff that attacks your hope will usually first steal your peace. 

What do you do when circumstances besiege you, bombard you on all sides that peace in this season of blessing is unrealistic? Naive? Childish?
