This week we looks to the psalms to train us to rejoice and give thanks. We learn that celebration and joy takes practice just as much as praise or lament.
This sermon we finish the story of Moses by looking at what the hope of eternal life means in a world that always ends in death. We look to the hope of resurrection instead of trying to extend our existence by other means.
This week we see God’s humble love directed towards Moses and the Israelites as the God of the universe is willing to bend his will to Moses’ will. Not that God is forced or coerced, but freely chooses to do this out of love.
This week we look at the story of the Golden Calf. We see how idolatry is always around us and what it looks like in our lives today.
This week we dive into the ten commandments (with the sun setting earlier than usual) and how they are more nuanced and layered than we may initially think. What at first may seem as condemning law is actually loving direction.
This week we continue to see God’s radical provision as the relationship and trust between God and the Israelites is put to the test. We think of where we have found sources of Living Water, even in unlikely place.
This week we look to God’s freeing action in the crossing of the Red Sea. We are reminded of the impermanence and fragility of this world. We are called to learn to cling to God instead of the world.
This week we look at a foundational passage for all of Israel, the institution of the Passover meal. We learn more about the uncontrollable, all powerful God through the story of the plagues and what it means to follow such a God.
In this week’s sermon we continue to look at the life of Moses and how he encounters a radically free God through the story of the burning bush and the giving of the holy name. We celebrate God’s being and how it gives us identity as Christians.
This week we transition from Genesis to Exodus through the story of Moses’ birth. We talk about how, as Christians, we shouldn’t have allegiance with any particular political party, but be solely devoted to the Kingdom of God.
