111316 – Disciples Refuse to Live in Fear

In the aftermath of a contentious election, fear seems to be the operative word. What does the future hold? How will racial, ethnic or religious minorities be treated now that the president elect has been chosen?
The prophet Isaiah offers words of inspiration to a people mired in despair. It is a beautiful vision, grounded in the hopes and dreams of a people who have lived far too long in fear. This Sunday Pastor Nancy finds direction for us Isaiah’s vision and calls us to look for the new creation breaking through the cracks in our fractured world.
In the words of Leonard Cohen who died this week,
“Ring the bells that still can ring
forget your perfect offering
there is a crack in everything
that’s how the light gets in.”
