  • Where Do We Find Hope?

    by the Rev. Seth Kellermann, Rector, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Grass Valley But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

  • Willfulness?

    by the Rev. John Mangels In chapter 30 of Isaiah, the leaders of Israel have made diplomatic overtures to the Egyptians, the other great power in that era, as a counterbalance to the Assyrians. Isaiah says that God opposes this strategy, insisting on an independent path (neither capitulating to the Assyrians nor depending on the Egyptians).
