Thursday, December 15, 2022


The Lord will judge between the nations
    and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore.  —Isaiah 2:4

War will stop when we no longer praise it, or give it any attention at all. Peace will come wherever it is sincerely invited.  —Alice Walker, Living by the Word, 1989

Open us to peace, and halt our praise of war, so that we might bend our weapons into gardening tools, and our hatred into sacred longing for connection. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
