About the Event
2020 is past (thank God!) and it feels like the worst may be behind us. But we’ve all paid a price — physically, psychologically and spiritually. With something like a global pandemic, where is our safe haven? Where do we go? Where can we turn to be restored? There are ancient texts that are meant to shift our vision, change our perspectives and lift our spirits — to restore us. Join us for Scriptural meditation and reflection based on the 51st chapter of Isaiah. Beginning August 5th, we will meet for an hour and fifteen minutes in four consecutive sessions to explore, commune and find renewal in God’s Word. ZOOM classes meet at noon PDT on August 5, 12, 19 and 26.
