December 1, 2015 (Isa 11:1-10)

“There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain.” At the start of Advent we hear from the Prophet Isaiah. We hear how God will raise up a just king from the “stump of Jesse.” This king would be full of God’s spirit. He will bring peace and justice. We all need to hear this. In our time we need a leader of peace and justice, too. Justice, mercy, and peace must meet in order for God’s kingdom to take hold. We are stakeholders in this kingdom. Peace, mercy, and justice must start with each one of us.
