Advent reading

Monday 3rd

Isaiah 2.1-5


He will wield authority over the nations and adjudicate between many peoples; these will hammer their swords into ploughshares, their spears into sickles.


Lord, if only the effort and finance we put into war

was put into make peace,

then your kingdom would be truly advanced.

Make each one of us instruments of your peace,

so that this prophecy may indeed be fulfilled.
