We are in the final week of a six-week series called “Promises Unfold.” God continually comes to us over and over again. And the same is true in this reading from the Prophet Isaiah. For the Spirit has appointed each one of us to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners. This is what we are called into as disciples, as followers, as students of Jesus.
A six-week series called Promises Unfold. In this series we explore stories from the Major and Minor Prophets. What do these scripture readings tell us about the very character of God and of humans? How do the promises of God unfold in times of suffering, conflict and chaos?
