Yesterday, as a Christmas greeting, a friend sent me this video…
Peacemaking happens each day in a million and one small ways.
Person to person.
Household to household.
Bending that long arc of history in the direction of justice and peace.
Relentlessly pushing towards God’s promised day.
In Advent, Christians often turn to these words from the prophet Isaiah as a reminder of the promises of the season, and of who we are called to be and what we are called to do.
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares;
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation;
Neither shall they learn war any more.
Today, may we all find our unique way to be peacemakers and not just peace lovers.
