Weekly News for Sunday, Sept. 24, 2023


For the next two Sundays we are going to marinate in Isaiah 40. Isaiah closes with that famous coffee cup passage “Those who hope in the Lord, will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.”   What an amazing picture that should shape our identity in Christ.
