Several years ago a submarine was being tested and had to remain submerged for many hours. When it returned to the harbor, the captain was asked, "How did the terrible storm last night affect you?" The officer looked at him in surprise and exclaimed, "Storm? We didn't even know there was one!" The sub had been so far beneath the surface that it had reached the area known to sailors as "the cushion of the sea." Although the ocean may be whipped into huge waves by high winds, the waters below are never stirred.

This, I believe, is a perfect picture of the peace of Christmas. The waves of worry, of fear, of heartbreak, cannot touch those who are at peace with God with themselves and with others.

From Mark Roper's Sermon "Let Us Go To Bethlehem and Find the Promise of Christmas"
