Preaching: Pastor Craig Brown Sermon: God’s Just Getting Started The focus this week is on trusting in God’s gracious presence in troubled times. Being a prophet was often about being faithful in the face of defeat and rejection, and yet seeing it all as part of God’s design. The Gospel writers interpret the promise of child as applying to Jesus. Be faithful, stand fast, God will provide. Immanuel, God with us, was as specific and real as the child of that time waiting to be born. Scripture:Isaiah 6:1-11; Isaiah 7:1-17; Isaiah 40:1-11NIV
