Read Isaiah 2:1-5.
God of the highest mountain,
You call the nations to put down their swords.
You teach us to walk in your path,
Begging us to tear down our walls,
Calling us to overcome our differences.
As Isaiah prophesies, we trust that one day
Our swords will be replaced with plowshares
of love, learning, and understanding.
Loving God, help us this Advent season not to wait idly, but to realize Isaiah’s vision, continually relying on God. May we learn to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with you. Amen.
