This Sunday, we are hearing from the prophet Isaiah. We will be looking at Isaiah 40: 1-11. This Sunday will be the second Sunday of Advent and we will be lighting the peace candle. The word 'peace' is not mentioned in this passage, but the message of shalom is one of the major themes. For those who do not know, shalom is Hebrew for well-being, and it includes wholeness and peace in mind, body, and spirit.
Join me in reading and reflecting on this passage and how God is offering shalom during this season of COVID, this season of WAITING, this season of ADVENT(preparing for the coming of our God).
The art used before and after the message for reflection and worship is above.
