Scripture: Isaiah 58; Matthew 5:13-16
Sermon: “When It Pours, It Restores”
The last part of the book of Isaiah has always been intimately connected to our understanding of the life and ministry of Christ in the world. What does it mean to worship God in the light of our relationship with Christ? As an answer to that, we are asked by Jesus in our gospels this week to consider the meaning and importance of being salt and light for others. It is good to remember that we are part of the great call of God to be agents of transformation and healing. Our world needs it, we need it. Note in the scripture the various places where the notion of restoration is present.
Join us for worship on Sunday, February 9th at 10:30 a.m. and for coffee and fellowship after the service.
Our monthly prayer group will meet in the Green Room after coffee hour on Sunday, February 9th. Jesus said, ‘When two or three are gathered in my name, I am there.” Bring your prayers about whatever joys or concerns you may have on your mind and in your heart. All are welcome to attend.
