Narrative Lectionary — Old Testament Week Seven — Elijah and the Widow

October 31, 2016 @ 10:58 am

We are introduced this week to Elijah.  We see here Elijah in his apprenticeship as a prophet.  But it is an important time, an important moment.  This is from 1 Kings 17 with a touch of the end of 1 Kings 16 thrown in to help us get the idea of what is going on.  Two big ideas:  (1) Yahweh is a God of Life and (2) Yahweh's words matter. 

This particular sermon is from the 9:00 Service.

Narrative Lectionary — Old Testament Week Three — Joseph

October 20, 2016 @ 11:09 am

This starts with Genesis 37 and ends with Genesis 50 and a good pick of skipping over key elements of the story.  And it was a communion Sunday.  Whew.  But "Houston, we've got a problem" seemed to work on this one.
