For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onward and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
It’s Christmas. We’re celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace.
A horrendous tragedy occurred in Newtown, Connecticut.
Now we’re arguing about guns, about our rights, about arming teachers, placing heavily armed guards in schools.
What would the Prince of Peace think about us now?
