2 In days to come
the mountain of the Lord’s house
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and shall be raised above the hills;
all the nations shall stream to it.
3 Many peoples shall come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob;
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth instruction,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 He shall judge between the nations,
and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
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.
God of Peace,
By your grace, help us to contribute to crafting that nest of peace. As we enter into this season of Advent, enable us to live in peace, offer our gifts to the work of peacemaking, and to share the possibility of peace with others. Amen.
This week’s video offers perspective on Peace, the theme of this second week of Advent. How are you making peace?
