Illuminate: Peace

Luke 1:26-38, 46-55

Christmas can be a time of great joy, but it can also be a time which reminds us that we feel alone or inadequate.  It’s easy to feel that the forces of the world go on and leave us behind.  Yet it is precisely to a very simple girl named Mary that God comes and gives good news.  She would be entrusted to be the mother of God’s savior, Jesus!  Mary did what many do not when they are encountered by God, she said yes.  In this complete dependence upon God we see in Mary’s life, and God invites us in our lives, to experience the peace he gives.  We know that he loves us and will take care of us.
