Advent Voices – Human Rights Day



This day’s reminder to respect and uphold universal human rights is more than the left of centre pre-occupation – it is fundamental to maintaining and enhancing our integrity as people. The beatific vision of Isaiah 65:17-25 that rhapsodises new heavens and a new earth, while initiated by YHWH, can be imagined to be addressed through people given to the vision of the reign of shalom. Such is granted for the removal of barriers that prevent access to full health, education, nutrition, shelter and meaningful vocation. Such universal “reminder” days help us to maintain focus and direction, particularly when tempted to succumb to lesser self-serving narratives.
