On August 21,we will start a new series of sermons, looking at how Abraham and Sarah (in the book of Genesis) handle the ambiguities of life between God and the world. Here is an overview:
“Living Between Grace and Gratitude: The Gospel According to Abraham & Sarah.”
In the book of Genesis, Abraham and Sarah live in the ambiguous space between God’s grace and their own ability to be grateful for it in their lives. They live, at their best, by faith, walking again and again into an unknown future, trying to follow God’s promises, not knowing exactly what that will mean. As often as not they let less positive motivations guide their actions. So they are like most all of us. Their experience of the grace of God, even when they don’t know quite what to make of it, shows us important insights about what God is doing in our lives.
Here is the schedule. Please join us!
