Anyone born this century has only ever really known a world with one major power or another at war, and our communities and country often feel uncivil and conflicted.  We have more technology than ever to keep track of our many responsibilities, but it doesn't give us relief from the anxiety of it all.  We are aching for peace, but as something deeper than just a quiet, comfortable feeling.  There has to be a difference, in other words, between being at peace... and being numb.  In this year's Advent series, pastors Sarah, Erica, and Steve are seeking to "unsentimentalize" the major themes of this season that leads up to Christmas, which means explore what peace really is, and how it might move us to greater action in the world rather than less.  In a conversation that ranges from ancient prophets to contemporary poets, and which mixes Star Trek references with Wendell Berry's environmental philosophy, we invite you to a deeper consideration of being people of restless peace.
