TERCE - (Coffee Break)


The Desert Shall Bloom

The desert shall rejoice and blossom;
it shall rejoice with gladness and singing.
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed:
and the majesty of our God.

Old Testament Reading - Let’s Argue This Out


16Oh, wash yourselves! Be clean! Let me no longer see you doing all these wicked things; quit your evil ways. 17Learn to do good, to be fair, and to help the poor, the fatherless, and widows.

18Come, let’s talk this over, says the Lord; no matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you white as wool! 19If you will only let me help you, if you will only obey, then I will make you rich! 20But if you keep on turning your backs and refusing to listen to me, you will be killed by your enemies; I, the Lord, have spoken.

. . . . .Isaiah 1:16-20
