When the worst happened, when my vows were trampled and Tiill Death do Us Part' turned into '^m Out of Here!,' you were there for me and for my children. Thank you! For much of the past 5+ years, I've felt trapped in a life between a horror movie and a Tyler Perry screenplay.

Konnie Robinson, pastor of Union Chapel Baptist Church, brought forth a mighty and encour aging word as friends and fam ily wit nessed what God has done in just one year, the church reports. "It is by the grace of God we have established church by laws, developed a church organizational structure, created a church logo, pur chased office equipment and have been blessed with our first pulpit designed specifically for NWC," the church reports.

Recognize how sin drives us away from God ? Understand that no human can get us in right rela tionship with God ? Appreciate that God alone redeems humanity Background: Isaiah meaning "Yehweh saves" was a contemporary ot Amos, Hosea, and Micah. This major prophet (length of book) began his ministry in the year that King Uzziah died in 740 BC. He was called "the prince of prophets" due to his extensive writing. "The New Testament alluded to his writings more than 250 times and quoted him directly 50 times" (Richards' Complete l^ble Handbook). The book has 66 chapters divided into two sections - Judgment chap ters 1-39 and Restoration chap ters 40-66. Like his contempo raries, Isaiah's message was given during a stormy period in the history of God's People, Israel in the north and Judah in the south. In both kingdoms, the leadership (kings, judges, priests and false prophets) rebelled against God and exploited the people. As their hearts turned further from God (tneir re Demon), corruption ana tnjusuces oecame com monplace. God's prophets warned the people about the impending judgment of God; however their arrogance led them to ignore His mouthpieces. Assyria crushed Israel in 722 BC and scattered most of the Jews who lived there. See Peppers on B6 * 1 I Mildred Peppers Sunday School Lesson
