Restored Hope in the City of Chaos

by Brian Walsh

On this seventh anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, I find myself drawn to Isaiah. This meditation begins with Isaiah 24.1-20 and I suggest that the reader begin there too. And then at the end of the meditation I lead our thoughts into Isaiah 65.17-25. I would encourage you to end with a reading of that oracle of hope.
