Isaiah offers a vision of the world as it should be – as it might be. His vision is one of justice and peace. During this Advent season we dream with Isaiah and others, hoping that we will participate more fully in the realization of these dreams. The coming of Christ is an in-breaking of God’s presence, and a foretaste of the “days to come.” How will we watch and wait? How might we begin to live differently because of the hope we share?
