War for Peace? (Sukkot 5772)

In General on October 18, 2011 at 9:55 pm

We are comforted
yet arm for war.
What Return? What Redemption?

Zechariah 14:1-21

Why does the first Sukkot prophet, Zechariah, tell us about war, when Sukkot celebrates the harvest? Does harvest represent peace and fellowship? Or does it represent hard won prosperity?

What do you celebrate when you eat on Sukkot? Do you sit in the Sukkah, or in your home? Are you thankful for the food, or wanting more? Do you make peace, or war?
