Remember the 1970 song, War, made famous by Edwin Starr? It had the famous lyric, War! What is it good for . . . absolutely nothin! It became a rallying cry for many opposed to the war in Vietnam and a divisive song for a country torn by that conflict. Today, many ask the same question about church . . . what is it good for? Some would say, absolutely nothing, thus the steady decline in church membership. Even the prophet Isaiah had some pretty scathing remarks too about how “church” is done. Come join us Sunday as we explore the first chapter of Isaiah and try to answer the question, Church . . . what is it good for? See you Sunday!
