Reading: Romans 10:5-15 (Click to read text)
How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of the messenger who announces peace,
who brings good news,
who announces salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” (Isaiah 52:7)
Pedicures seem to be in this summer at Camp Mount Luther. Nothing is going to do much for these 72-year-old toe nails, but some of the younger staff (male and female) are into it and their feet do look really nice.
I used this text to preach my one and only ordination sermon. What a nice image. The announcement of peace, good news, salvation, “Your God reigns.” Truly beautiful. And the one who brings us that message is indeed beautiful, no matter how their feet look.
Who needs to hear the good news today? If it is you, then hear this, “Your God reigns.” If it is somebody in your office, home, on the street, …. then get those beautiful feet to work!! --Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff.
