Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: Isaiah 40:21-31
The reading for today offers a poetic reminder of the glory of God, and of God’s constant presence and mercy. Even when life is challenging, God is already present with us, more powerful than we can imagine, and gathering us ever closer. We have as much need of this reminder as the people who first heard Isaiah’s words. It rights our perspective and cheers us on.
