This coming third Sunday in Advent, we will celebrate the “Good News of Salvation” as proclaimed by Isaiah 61:1-11.  Jesus read from this text during worship at his home synagogue in Nazareth and then startled the congregation by saying, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” (Luke 4:21)  Jesus cites this text as a description of his mission.  For Isaiah and Jesus, “salvation” is not just about getting to heaven, but is a present reality of liberation, healing, justice and peace.  Now that is some really good news!  To listen to pastor Ernie’s message, click on “The Good News of Salvation”
