Last week, while stuck in LA traffic I saw a homeless encampment under a bridge. It was dark and sad.
But then a church van drove up, and people got out with bright flashlights. Suddenly the homeless village seemed to be moving.
Then my light turned green, and a few angry honks reminded me to move on.
The people in darkness had seen a great light. Join us this week in worship has we hear from Isaiah, who has a hopeful and needed message.
See you in church!
