An excerpt from Isaiah 4:2-6 (NRSV)
Indeed over all the glory there will be a canopy. It will serve as a pavilion, a shade by day from the heat, and a refuge and a shelter from the storm and rain.
Painting and Reflection from Jon Dutcher:
This verse reminds me of a time when we were visiting a park in Hawaii. It started to rain when we walked into a bamboo forest, which provided a natural canopy and gave us a sense of protection.
For further study and prayer, the readings assigned for today are:
Psalm 27; Isaiah 4:2-6; Acts 11:1-18
“Redeemer of Israel”
Text by Joseph Swain and W.W. Phelps,
Music by Freeman Lewis, arr. Mack Wilberg
“Redeemer of Israel, our only delight,
On whom for a blessing we call,
Our shadow by day and our pillar by night,
Our King, our Deliv’rer, our all!”
