The Harvest House, located 736 S. Cuyler, started 2021 with new directors as Ed and Brenda Sattesahn took over Feb. 1 after the passing of Gary Snyder last year.  “The (Harvest House) board of directors gave us a call and asked if we were interested and we accepted,” Ed said. The non-profit...
Within the two general topics of redemption and judgment there are three major themes in Isaiah. First, God is the Holy One of Israel (1:4; 24 times in Isaiah). He judges according to the standard of His holiness. Yet, God is Redeemer as well as Judge. He desires to be known in a redemptive manner...
