Advent 2011: Day 5

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

DAY 5: The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) 

Read and Discuss the name and its application to Christ. 

History/Math: Estimate how many years of war there have been in relationship to years of peace? Begin anywhere you want to. Easiest would be start with Declaration of Independence to now. etc. 

Art: What are some symbols of peace? Draw pictures of them. 

Living: What does it mean to have peace in our lives? Does it mean "no war?" What is the work of the Prince of Peace? (Enables us to have Peace with God, Peace within ourselves, peace with others.) 

Bible: What does it mean to be a "peacemaker?" 

Challenge: Commit to sharing the gospel of peace with someone this week.
