ISAIAH 58 SERMONS - June 10, 2016 - OCTOBER 9, 2016
After two years of working on Isaiah 58 paintings Pastor Julie preached on this powerful chapter! It became way more applicable, given all of the events in the first several days of July 2016...more applicable than she and many of us had ever dreamed. Judgement and hope are the main themes in this chapter...and this theme of Pastor's sermon series continued throughout the summer and into the Fall.
