November 27, 2016.  We begin our Advent Series, And on Earth…Peace, by hearing the dream of Isaiah that one day all tools of war will be transformed into instruments of peace.  While most of us don’t march at the head of armies, we do possess tools that wound, particularly our words.  What if we declared our church a “disarmament zone”? Then we could set aside our passions and opinions long enough to really talk about and deal with the issues of society that divide us.  What if we could do the same with our families?  After all, Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”.
