#Genesis: Jacob and Esau

August 1, 2017

Jacob didn’t receive the birthright, the opportunity to lead God’s people because he was handsome, smart, and smooth-skinned, where his brother was ugly, hairy, and dumb. ...Nor did Jacob receive the birthright because he was the virtuous one and his brother was a moral midget. This was a game both of them lost.

Jacob received the birthright because he knew what to do with it, and his brother didn’t. Jacob received the birthright because he could see God’s vision for the future of his people.

#Genesis: Sarah Laughed

July 3, 2017

Yes, she laughed at the thought of having a baby at her age. Yes, she laughed at the thought of finding physical intimacy with her husband again, an intimacy that was forgotten as the years aged them. Yes, she laughed at the idea that her dreams might come true just as her life was supposed to be winding down. She wasn’t laughing out of spite. She was laughing at the absurdity of it all.

Abram and Sarai
June 25, 2017
Genesis 12:1-19 NRSV

"...But now, so much in the church is about preservation and survival. So much in the church is about safety and comfort. The world can seem hostile at worst to our faith, and indifferent at best....So much in our lives is about comfort, preferring our adventures to be on a screen rather than in flesh and blood interactions with a world that can be unsafe.

"But safety, security, and comfort isn’t where growth happens.

"Risk follows a vision of what life can be, a vision of what God wants the world to look like, and how we can help God build that world..."
