“For you shall go out in joy, and be led back in peace…” — Isaiah 55:12a
The scriptures for this Sunday describe everything in creation offering joyful noises to God. Our joy is complete because the joy of Christ resides within us. We cannot help but break forth. This joy is available to all, realizes the community in Acts. The Holy Spirit finds its way even and especially in what feels like unlikely people and places. Where do we see the Spirit at work and who can withhold the living water and our living praise? No one!
