Family Stories –
Grace and peace to you, Friends in the Lord. This week in our Sunday worship we continue the summer preaching series of “Family Stories” as Abraham sends a trusted servant to find a wife for his son, Isaac. Throughout the entire journey, God blesses and guides and provides; the trusted servant responds well. The trusted servant relies heavily on God and so when “the moment” of discernment comes, he “gets” what God is doing! In this chapter of our family story it is easy to see God’s steadfast covenant love unfolding right before our eyes.
Want to share more deeply in this type of a family story-where God’s steadfast covenant love is flowing and gushing up like a mighty river? Want to know more fully our God who is continually at work on our behalf, blessing, guiding, and providing for us all? Of course we do! We hear a resounding “YES” echoing in our midst! But wait, there’s more…God invites us into this way of thriving. God hopes for us to respond so that things go well for all-even better than we can ask or imagine. Come this Sunday as we share and celebrate in God’s family story, which by God’s grace, is our story! See you then.
