Reflections for 12-1-2013

Isaiah 2:1–5

Isaiah’s message for the people of Judah – a message that can still teach us today – proclaims peace to a people who were surrounded by war and conflict. Isaiah explains that peace is not just an absence of fighting, but peace is working together with our enemies. It’s the kind of peace that requires our participation and attention. It’s peace made of justice and the well-being of all people.
Just as Advent is a time when we wait expectantly for the coming of Christ in the world, peace requires the same watchfulness and involvement.

This week replace three habits with new ways that lift up the well-being of others.
