Sermon

Minister of Community Life Rachel Bauman sets out on a “joy watch” based on the morning'ss scripture from Isaiah (61:1-11) which promises a double portion of joy. The words come in a time of exile, return, and restoraion. The writer claims that it is those who are oppressed who will lead the way. It is God’s nature to move toward justice and wholeness and it is in human’s nature to have agency to move toward restoration—we get to choose. Will we say yes? That is where joy is.
