Oaks of Righteousness

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord;
    my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
    he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,  -Isaiah 61:10

Wonderful services as we walked through Isaiah 61.  Powerful time together!  We had 1 worship team over at Connie Maxwell and many college students serving in different churches today.  It is such a great thing to partner together with other churches!
