Desolation: Cause and Remedy

This week, we begin a four-sermon series on the Book of Isaiah.  Isaiah (and his followers) write almost 3000 years ago, but their reflections on tragedy, justice, the prophetic task, healing, and hope resonate today as much as they ever had.  In the first chapter, Isaiah sees the devastation, inequality, and injustice around him and argues that the remedy is not shows of piety, but justice for the poor and neglected.  A message for our day as well.
