The Shout Out

• First Sunday after Christmas
with Isaiah 61:10-62:3 @kerrfunk

• If you’re happy and you know it…
… clap your hands…
… stomp your feet…
… say “Amen”...

If you’re Christian and you know it…
... what do we do?

• Name a tax law that came out in 2014? Name a movie?
Which has more effect on your life?
The church needs to work on its presentation.

Q: Why do people buy Coke? Or McD’s?
A: Branding + word of mouth. BOTH are important.
Regarding Christian witness, Which do YOU have control over?

• Who has Plan2015? Coke? McD’s? IRS? Church?

Our Plan2015 comes from you. And our Plan2015 depends on you

• Our kids. Our community.

• In Luke…why did shepherds respond? Because compelling. Shout Out.

• Hymn Sing We Now of Christmas

Isaiah 61:10-62:3   (Common English Bible)                       12/28/14

10 I surely rejoice in the Lord;
    my heart is joyful because of my God,
    because he has clothed me with clothes of victory,
    wrapped me in a robe of righteousness
    like a bridegroom in a priestly crown,
    and like a bride adorned in jewelry.
11 As the earth puts out its growth,
    and as a garden grows its seeds,
    so the Lord God will grow righteousness and praise before all the nations.

62 For Zion’s sake I won’t keep silent,
    and for Jerusalem’s sake I won’t sit still
    until her righteousness shines out like a light,
    and her salvation blazes like a torch.
Nations will see your righteousness,
    all kings your glory.
You will be called by a new name,
    which the Lord’s own mouth will determine.
You will be a splendid garland in the Lord’s hand,
    a royal turban in the palm of God’s hand.
