Depart in Peace (And Joy)! St. John's Lutheran Church, Williston Park, NY

    • Christianity

God had promised a man named Simeon that he would not die until He had seen the Savior. One day, in the Temple at Jerusalem, God kept His promise to him. While holding the baby Jesus in his arms, Simeon spoke those familiar words, "Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word" (Luke 2:29). These words challenge us to see how we define peace and joy in our lives. These gifts are not found in the removal of burdens but Jesus.
