This is the third lesson of Advent. On this lesson we contemplate Bethlehem and the lessons of love and peace. It is curious that we pair the gifts of love and peace with Bethlehem. Bethlehem was not a peaceful or loving place for Mary, Joseph and Christ child at Christ’s birth because they had no room for them. Listen to Pastor Cheryl’s talk about how God’s love and peace shines through this lesson in spite of humanity’s rejection.
