Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11
Sermon Intro: Let’s talk about the weather. Perhaps one of the easiest conversations to have with another person. It’s even one of the few topics one can engage in with a complete stranger. Biblical authors often talk about the weather, sometimes literally and sometimes metaphorically. In a world and in a time void of any real scientific theories or abilities, the people in bible times relied on those among them who were most in touch with religious teachings in order to get their daily forecasts.
