Reflection Question 2: Isaiah promises a future time when all nations will ‘go up to Jerusalem’. This will be a time of Justice and Judgment. Fighting will change to Feeding. Outside the United Nations is a sculpture where a sword is beaten into a plough with the inscription ‘they shall beat their swords into ploughs’. What changes in the world need to take place for this ‘transformation’? What change needs to take place within ‘you’? What weaponry do you use: Wounding words? Cutting looks? Angry attitudes? Arrogant pride? Blindness toward to the hurting? How could you ‘walk in the light of the Lord’?

Advent Story: William Barclay. 3 Devils. Three apprentice devils were coming to earth to finish their apprenticeship. They were talking to Satan, the chief of the devils, about their plans to tempt and ruin people. The first said: I will tell people there is no God. Satan said, ‘that will not delude many, for they know that there is a God.’ The second said ‘I will tell them there is no hell.’ Satan answered, ‘you will deceive no on that way; they know even now that there is a hell for sin.’ The third said, ‘ I will tell them there is no hurry.’ ‘Go’ said Satan ‘and you will ruin them by the thousand’.
