Messages of peace surround us at Christmastime. But how calm is our Christmas? How calm was that first Christmas? Jesus was born into a troubled world. And Jesus comes as a gift of peace to our world exactly as it is right now.

The resources in the packet can help us work towards the fulfilment of Jesus' promise as we learn to live by values of reconciliation, creative problem-solving, acceptance of differences, and unity with the poor and powerless.
