    Repairer of the Breach

    “Repairer of the Breach” – Isaiah 58:1-12Sermon by The Rev. Rachel C. Thompson from February 9, 2020. "Isaiah’s words are this beautiful reminder that at the center of the Gospel is the truth that through the love of God we belong to each other. I can’t separate my personal wellbeing from yours because the love of God breaks down all barriers, all divisions. The love of God builds up and redeems and restores–and calls us all to do the same."Read the manuscript on our website: http://www.spres.org/repairer-of-the-breach/
