“According to the Christmas story in the Bible, angels proclaimed ‘peace on earth’ when they announced the birth of Jesus. In 1967, in a Christmas Eve sermon, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said that ‘we neither have peace within nor peace without.’ How do contemporary Christians understand Christmas as a season of peace in today’s often chaotic world? Managing editor Kim Lawton talks with evangelical teacher and writer Nancy Guthrie in Nashville and with UCC pastor Otis Moss III in Chicago about what peace on earth means to them and what it requires of twenty-first-century Christian communities.” – Religion & Ethics Newsweekly
