But you, O Bethlehem of Ephrathah,
who are one of the little clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
one who is to rule in Israel,
whose origin is from of old,
from ancient days.
Therefore he shall give them up until the time
when she who is in labor has brought forth;
then the rest of his kindred shall return
to the people of Israel.
And he shall stand and feed his flock in the strength of the Lord,
in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they shall live secure, for now he shall be great
to the ends of the earth;
and he shall be the one of peace.
To remind us of “the one of peace,” Christie Bray has created this Peace Pole. Take a look at the photos of each side of the Peace Pole.
What stands out to you and why?
This Peace Pole will stand in the sanctuary throughout Advent. Later we will place it in the Community Garden where it will stand as a reminder of the peace of Christ.
How can you stand as a reminder of Christ’s peace today?
