Advent 3 – Joyful, Joyful…Why? – or- When the Future Interrupted the Present

For centuries the church has linked Isaiah 35 with abounding joy. (If searching for a reason to sing “Joy to the World,” the church would put this passage high on the list of reasons why!)

In this episode, I do my best to explain why this poetic vision is cause for rejoicing, how it is that the future is making itself known in the present, and why faith in the goodness of God is a very wise way to live.  I also hope is makes you smile.
