Advent #2: Peace – Following the Child – December 8, 2013

Advent #2: “Peace – Following the Child”

Text: Isaiah 11:1-10

Isaiah’s vision of the Peaceable Kingdom inspires us to live into the Kingdom where enemies will be made friends. Despite the seeming evidence to the contrary, we stubbornly proclaim that the Prince of Peace has come, and will come again.  The image of the shoot from the stump of Jesse gives us great hope, as we realize that God can bring light to the darkness, hope to the hopeless, and peace to those in conflict.
