Isaiah’s Advent Promise of Peace eRetreat

“The deepest source of hope is the God of Isaiah,” wrote the great peacemaker Daniel Berrigan. This hope permeates Isaiah’s vision of peace. Hope that swords can be beaten into plowshares. Hope that the lowly will be raised and tyrants will descend from their thrones. Hope that all shall live together in peace upon God’s holy mountain. Writings of the prophet Isaiah resound with hope throughout the Advent season.... Who better to lead us on our Advent journey than a prophet who tasted God’s longing for nonviolent transformation? Who better to kindle our flame of Advent hope than one who remained faithful to God’s vision of peace through doubt and despair?
