TRANSFORMATIONS – This Sunday (9/9/2012) Pastor Teresa will explore Isaiah 35 looking at this evocative passage exploring the ways God transformed not only the landscape but also souls.
We will also gather as a community to bless our backpacks, calendars, briefcases and our vocations. Please bring a symbol of your vocation to place before the altar for blessing. As you are able bring a yummy snack from your cupboard to celebrate our coming back together as a congregation during Fellowship Time.

The Voiceless Break into Song
1-2 Wilderness and desert will sing joyously, the badlands will celebrate and flower. Like the crocus in spring, bursting into blossom, a symphony of song and color. Mountain glories of Lebanon—a gift. Awesome Carmel, stunning Sharon—gifts. God’s resplendent glory, fully on display. God awesome, God majestic.
3-4Energize the limp hands, strengthen the rubbery knees. Tell fearful souls, “Courage! Take heart! God is here, right here, on his way to put things right And redress all wrongs. God is on his way! God will save you!”
5-7Blind eyes will be opened, deaf ears unstopped, Lame men and women will leap like deer, the voiceless break into song. Springs of water will burst out in the wilderness, streams flow in the desert. Hot sands will become a cool oasis, thirsty ground a splashing fountain. Even lowly jackals will have water to drink, and barren grasslands flourish richly.
8-10There will be a highway called the Holy Road. No one rude or rebellious is permitted on this road. It’s for God’s people exclusively impossible to get lost on this road. Not even fools can get lost on it. No lions on this road, no dangerous wild animals. Nothing and no one dangerous or threatening. Only the redeemed will walk on it. The people God has ransomed will come back on this road. They’ll sing as they make their way home to Zion, unfading halos of joy encircling their heads,Welcomed home with gifts of joy and gladness as all sorrows and sighs scurry into the night.
