Now What About That Blessing?
God told Jacob that he was to be blessed and would be a blessing for all the earth. This does not feel like a blessing but rather a curse! That is the point...Jacob could not be anything for anyone until he knew what it really meant to be a blessing. Learning to suffer from the manipulation of another was the only way to help Jacob develop empathy. What lessons are waiting on you?
Do you need to be hate4d so that you can accept another? Do you need to do without so that you can learn to be generous?
Sermon Text: Genesis 29:15-28
August 3rd Eighth Sunday After Pentecost
Named for a People
The fight with God did not start at the riverbank in this story. Jacob has been fighting his entire life - with his brother, his uncle, his wives, and God. Jacob is ready to be defined by God's mission for his life to serve a people. He walks with a new gate, a new mission, a new understanding.
Sermon Text: Genesis 32:22-31
August 10th Ninth Sunday After Pentecost
Little Minds...Big Picture
Theme: It was time to get rid of the pain in rump little brother. The brothers needed to stop being irritated by this kids. They wanted to relief from the pest until they experience raw grief and pain. How does the temporary pain of the moment feed into to a bigger story of victory? (The hunger and dryness of their bodies represents the hunger and pain of their spirits.) God will create the redemption story with or without you. You can be a part of the story to represent suffering from your small minded choices or you can represent the freedom and victory that comes from trusting in God's ability to redeem.
Sermon Text: Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28
August 17th Tenth Sunday After Pentecost
My God is so BIG!
What you intended for harm - God used for good. My God is so big because my God can so overcome your harm to create good for others. How do you forgive?

Five Woman and a Baby
People forget God's care but God does not forget people's needs. The Israelites were now in slavery and captivity. God was always making a away for God's people to be free. Who is in need today? Who is God using to make their redemption story possible. Is it Five Christians and ______?
Sermon Text: Exodus 1:8-2:10
August 31st Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost
God is who? what? when?
