Isaiah 11:6-10

CAMPAIGN BREAK

TAKEAWAYS

Over the next month leading to Advent, regularly read the poem in Isaiah 11:1-10, considering this commentary from Walter Brueggemann:

In poetry we can do things not permitted by logic or reason. Poetry will open the world beyond reason. Poetry will give access to contradictions and tensions that logic must deny. Poetry will not only remember, but also propose and conjure and wonder and imagine and foretell.

Consider these questions:

  • What does it ask you to remember?
  • What healing rest does it propose?
  • What truth and good work does it cause you to wonder about and imagine?
  • Where is might edge effect be present in your life that you might engage to help create the place of glorious rest the poem foretells?

BENEDICTION

Risen Christ,

Come near to us who are in places of death,

Come near to us who are strugging to surrender,

Come near to us fools and make us your fools,

And let us practice resurrection in a world that fears death.

Amen
