Advent 2 - Year A
Presumably John's call of "Repent" will eventuate in some "Peaceable Kingdom".
What will be the hallmark of such an outcome?
Justice followed by Righteousness. (NRSV)
Wise Rule and Just Rule (The Message)
Finally, a Jubilee followed by additional Jubilees on an accelerated schedule.
With this picture of the goal, what is the next practical step needed to be taken to bring that kind of wisdom, justice, and healing orientation into our present? What needs to be said out loud and acted with boldness to establish a beachhead in today for tomorrow to become established?
