God Who Is Creating

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Sunday service

Today’s scripture is part of a vision of Isaiah wherein God describes the creation of new heavens and a new earth.  Although to us it might initially sound like an apocalyptic vision of the end-time, the promise is for a new Jerusalem wherein there will be no distress, no weeping, and people will live out full lives.  Several other specific examples are given, and soon we begin to realize this newness is something we can all help create by working with God.  There are opportunities for us to alleviate poverty, discrimination, illness, and such, and help maneuver where we all stand now into the posture of the new Jerusalem.  Isaiah’s vision of God’s new creation can come to pass with our faith and willingness to aid in its coming.   (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
