Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.”

I have read this passage many times yet today I saw it in a new way. I admit I don’t like shoveling snow, but it is beautiful to look at. It covers the ugliness of the dead grass and dirt.

God’s forgiveness covers the ugliness of sin and gives us a new opportunity day by day to live as a beloved child. We may love God and our neighbor with vigor and joy.

I invite you to join us for worship and fellowship as we begin a new year. You are always welcome.
