Peace Amid Bedlam

The Rev. Dr. Michael Brown (other)

As we look ahead to Bethlehem, Michael Brown reminds us that Jesus was born into a world of oppression--exactly when a Prince of Peace is needed most. Jesus did not promise a peace that would magically erase painful realities, but a peace that exists in the midst of them.
