This is part two of our Advent series. Here’s part one:

We’ve been looking for peace in all the wrong places. What if the true peace we desire is found in our position as a child of God?

Today’s episode explores the second theme of Advent: Peace. Using Psalm 23 as our guide, we explore the first movement of the spiritual life, orientation.
