God shall judge between the nations,and shall arbitrate for many peoples;they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,and their spears into pruning-hooks;nation shall not lift up sword against nation,neither shall they learn war any more.
Isaiah 2:4 NRSV
Letter from the Editors
The words from the Prophet Isaiah echo across the centuries, presenting a vision forhow God will judge among the nations, arbitrate for many peoples, and help us turnour weapons of war into tools for living in harmony. “There is no way to peace — peaceis the way,” wrote A.J. Muste, a peace activist and minister in the Dutch ReformedChurch. If the way to peace is peace, as Muste claims, then what does it mean for us to journey towards peace during a time of war? This Lent, we encourage you to considerthis question. The forty days of Lent are an invitation for each of us to deepen our faith,to walk with Jesus towards Jerusalem, and to explore the city and the wilderness of theworld, our communities, and our lives along the way.This devotional is a collection of words and images to lead you into reflection, guideyou in prayer, and inspire your steps. Our contributors, many of them theologicalstudents, represent a diversity of perspectives from across North America. Whetheryou use this devotional individually or with a group, please know that you are nottraveling alone. You are joined by friends in faith across North America, and perhaps,around the globe.As we embark on this journey towards peace together, let us heed the words of all theprophets- from ancient times to modern day- who inspire us to work for peace, embracenon-violence, and turn our swords into plowshares.With Peace,

Is not this the fast that I choose:to loose the bonds of injustice,to undo the thongs of the yoke,to let the oppressed go free,and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,and bring the homeless poor into your house;when you see the naked, to cover them,and not to hide yourself from your own kin?
8
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,and your healing shall spring up quickly;your vindicator shall go before you,the glory of the Lord shall be your rearguard.
9
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;you shall cry for help, and he will say, Here I am.
Isaiah 58:6-9 NRSV
