What gives our lives value and meaning? What’s it all for? If we are honest with ourselves, even those of us who find hope in the way of Jesus sometimes have trouble answering that question. I am increasingly convinced that our “why” as individuals and as a community is to embrace and enact the deep goodness of the gospel (aka shalom). Isaiah 61 gives us a vivid picture of communal well-being and flourishing with the Spirit of God as its source. It helps us to imagine what it might it look like for us at Cap, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to incarnate the deep goodness of the gospel in our relationships, in our neighbourhoods, and in our vocations.
