The prophet Isaiah declares, “I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open eyes, to free prisoners, to free those who sit in shadow.” This can be a tall order for any person or community of people. But woven into the same passage are promises of grace. God promises to fill us with God’s spirit, to uphold us, to take us by the hand and keep us. Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West reminds us that, ultimately, we are called to serve not out of our own strength, but out of God’s.
