The Church at Worship “Advent with Isaiah” Isaiah is the prophet of Advent. He takes the stuff of our ordinary and often disappointing human experience and shows us how it is the very stuff that God uses to create and save and give hope. As we prepare for the coming of Emmanuel (God with us), Isaiah will help us be on the lookout for The Holy in the ordinary things of life. Our Sunday Morning Forums during Advent (November 27, December 4 and 18) will be a study/discussion of the texts from Isaiah and the sermon that morning, led by Dan Radcliffe.
