He will judge between the nations
and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
Remembering those who have lost their lives in the name of redemptive violence — all around the world.
May we become a people who seek creative alternatives to violence — surrendering our rights to retaliate.
