Isaiah 1:10-18

The prophets – those who spoke “The Word of the Lord” – often chastened the people of Israel for their personal and systemic failures to care for the most vulnerable in their society. True peace, the prophets remind us, can only come when love and resources are shared so that all people can experience the abundance God creates. How can our “passing” the peace as an act of worship inspire us to pass the peace on to our brothers and sisters in a hurting world?
