Tools of Peace

Week One of Prepare the Way, the 2019 Advent study
from the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas.

The prophet Isaiah, whose message speaks of the coming Messiah, sees a time when men will “beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks” (2:4). In other words, weapons of war will become tools for living in peace.

In this week’s study of Isaiah, Bishop Gary Lillibridge asks us to consider  which of our swords and spears we and God might transform into tools for peacemaking in our families, jobs, friendships, environments, and thinking.
