Episode Info:

The Poem is a 4-week series in Isaiah 11, a section of poetry a few of us have thought a lot about over the years. As a result of that thinking, it has had a large influence on how we view things and do things at Timberline Old Town & Everyday Joe's. The hopeful fruit of a month in the poem together is a reminder of our identity: congregationally and individually. 

 

TEXT

Isaiah 11:1-5

 

TAKEAWAYS

  1. We must reckon with what is and what was, but the Spirit of Christ is always leading us to newness
  2. Reckon with our words. What is our goal? To impress? To control? To bring healing, joy, reconciliation.
  3. Shut up sometimes.
  4. Listen to this: On Being with Krista Tippett - Eugene Peterson 

 

BENEDICTION

Risen Christ,

Come near to us who are in

       places of death,

Come near to us who are       

       struggling to surrender,

Come near to us fools

       and make us your fools

       and let us practice    

       resurrection in a world

       that fears death.

Amen
