Scripture:    Isaiah 35 (especially verses 8-10)
Summary:     Shalom allows us to imagine a joy-filled world.  It gives us a way to discuss and create a world that satisfies longings, even amidst hardship.  When Christ came, the gospel was revealed in “Good news of great joy, for all people…”  Joy is both a settled reality, come what may and one that results in expressions of trust and delight in God.  The world should find us "strange", living as people of joy.
