Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Advent 2 – The prophet Isaiah described the ruined kingdom of Israel in terms of a broken off tree stump, and there was great promise of renewal in the appearance of a new shoot growing out of the stump. The ancient kingdom would be renewed, and everyone would be protected and cared for. There would be perfect peace – shalom – instead of violence and destruction. To bring about this type of community we must change how we conduct ourselves; we need to engage in risky acts of listening, dialogue, hospitality, service, and working for justice with compassion. We can get involved in making peace one step at a time, and may we experience the joy of it.
Isaiah 11: 1-10
