Let it be

This is what is read in the church today: (Isaiah 2:4)
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

The message is clear: at least at the surface level. Make love no war. A detail: let’s beat the swords into plowshares was one of the heavily-used slogans of leftish peace movements in the second half of twentieth century. Being mostly atheistic, they never gave ref to the source. I know for a fact that many people of my cultural background regard the phrase as a stamp of communistic propaganda being unaware of its true origin.

We live in a military town, but I’m a native. This summer I planned a bunch of outings in our community to expose the military families to what our town has to offer (since most of them think this is a &#2nb0;2ori2g⁙ place). It was such a blast for those of us who participated! Thanks for the great advice, and I agree. It doesn’t matter where you live; there’s great stuff to do everywhere!
