“We are living through a tumultuous time, nationally and globally. These seismic times reverberate into our own personal lives. Though this may be new to us, it is not new to the human experience broadly, nor God’s people specifically. These times and experiences may be likened to the barren wasteland of the desert. Nothing can grow there; everything is impossible. And yet, because the Lord–the helper of his people, the Redeemer of Israel–is God, all manner of hope, consolation, life, and joy is possible. More than that, hope is assured. Water is indeed possible in waterless places.”
The Rev. Matthew Lanser, a minister in our Presbytery, brings us the Word this evening, preaching on “Water in Waterless Places” from Isaiah 41:8-20.
