On Memorial Day weekend we honor the sacrifice and courage of those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation, giving their lives for others. Our church family has a number of members on active duty, both here at home and around the world. We also hold them in our prayers, asking God to keep them safe and to surround them and their families with grace.
This Sunday’s scripture portrays a scene of drama and mystery. A man named Isaiah experiences a vision of God in the Temple. It terrifies him. He knows his nation is in trouble, and glimpsing the holiness of God doesn’t make make him feel any better about it. Over the ages, people have pictured God in many different ways, and used a variety names for the Holy. Isaiah’s vision reminds us that there is always more to God than we could ever expect. Isaiah is still terrified, but when he hears God asking for help, he responds with courage he did not know he possessed. The text for Jonathan’s sermon is Isaiah 6:1-8, “The Faces of God.”
We remember our members and friends who are at our annual Family Camp, having a wonderful time at Camp Lazy W, in the hills above San Juan Capistrano.
