Grace to you and peace, from God Our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!
We pray in faith and we worship with hope and praise. As we gather for worship on Sunday and move forward with votes that we pray will reflect God’s desires for our church in this community, we can take comfort in the lessons from scripture in this weekend’s lectionary texts. Isaiah 65:17-18 “For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight.” The prophet Isaiah reassures us that we are in God’s hands and that God has delight in mind for us. As we carry our friends and families in prayer together and as we look to how we may continue our church’s mission long into the future, we may remember this good news.
Blessings and peace, Lisa
