Service Type:

Bible Text: Isaiah 40:1-11 | Preacher: Nathan Willard | Series: Narrative Lectionary Year 2

Babylon sacks Jerusalem and sends the Jews into exile for 70 years. But in the midst of exile, Isaiah sees hope that banishment will end and that the valleys and mountains will be leveled, making the road back easy. It has been a tough few weeks for us, with terrorists in Colorado in a Planned Parenthood and terrorists in San Bernadino. What do Isaiah’s prophecies say to us?
