Pastor Wayne continues this series, “Are We There Yet?” with this sermon, “Finding Joy in the Journey.” We’re not there yet. But we’re getting closer. Joy is part of our journey as we sing “Joy to the world, the Lord is come” but sometimes that joy is elusive because we are grieving. Regardless, the joy of the Lord is present even when we may not be aware of it. God is always present with us in our joy and our sorrow. We are surrounded by others who have made this journey before us and while their journey may not be ours, they can help us find our way.
The scriptures that form the basis of this message are found at Isaiah 35:1-10 and Matthew 11:2-11.
