I would have loved to have returned to my starting point, but the difficulty was that I was sitting on the back of a horse - - a large horse - - and the horse had no intent of going anywhere.
Good morning. Grace and peace to you.
Our reading from Isaiah today is from the third section of Isaiah during the time of the Israelites returning from exile back their home. And when they get there their former home is a sad site. The City walls of Jerusalem are crumbled and on the ground. This City that served as their center of faith and life is in ruins. And they return, overwhelmed and sad, but with the hopes of rebuilding again.
