Rev. Steve Clark preaching
“The Hope for Justice”
Isaiah 11:1-10 & Matthew 3:1-12
For reflection: Verses 1-5 in the Isaiah reading describe a future leader God will raise up for the people. What qualities stand out for you in this description? Can you think of leaders (religious, political, or otherwise) who have exhibited some of these qualities? Verses 6-9 describe the effects of this leadership on the world; where have you seen signs of this kind of “peaceable kingdom” in your life, or in the world? How can YOU help this kind of reality come into being this Advent season, even in some small way?
