In this season of Advent, may you walk in the light of peace! God bless you and thank you, for the privilege of serving as your minister.
An Advent Reading
the Lord’s house will be there,
on that highest mountain.
And people will climb the mountain
and learn, from the Lord, how to live.
And they will spread the word to others,
so that everyone will know
how to act in the right way.
No nation shall invade another nation.
No, never again shall anyone be trained for war.
Swords shall be hammered into plows for the farm,
and spears recycled into tools for the garden.
let us all walk in the light of the Lord.
adapted from Isaiah 2:1-5
Isaiah reminds us that Advent is about creating a new world in which there will be only one center, one people, one Light and one reason to be. “The mountain of God’s house shall be established as the highest mountain . . . and all nations shall stream toward it…O house of Jacob, come,” Isaiah pleads. “Let us walk in the light of our God.”
In this season of advent, let us look up, to the mountaintop, let us walk together in the light of God.
With love, Pastor Laurie
