Sermon Thoughts for 12/8/19

What good can come from an old tree stump?  Well, according to Isaiah 11:10, a vision of peace can come from weatherbeaten places and weary people.

Quaker minister Edward Hicks used the text of Isaiah 11:10 as inspiration for a series of “Peacable Kingdom” paintings.  See https://www.reynoldahouse.org/collections/object/peaceable-kingdom-of-the-branch for an example.

What is Jesus’ vision for a peaceable kingdom today?  And, are we looking for it?  The vision may come from an old stump or other unlikely places.
