Scripture Lesson:

“Then Isaiah said, ‘Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also? Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel.  He will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, for before the boy knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, the land of the two kings you dread will be laid waste.  The Lord will bring on you and, on your people, and on the house of your father a time unlike any since Ephraim broke away from Judah—he will bring the king of Assyria.’ ” - Isaiah 7:13-17

Sermon: "Doing a Good Deed"

The Rev. Mark Dickinson, Settle Memorial senior pastor
