I’ve been thinking a lot about God (an occupational hazard I suppose) but so have most of you. When I think about how my life intersects with God’s, where I encounter God in my daily life, I am drawn to one word: generous! There are very few moments when I am not experiencing the blanket of God’s grace. What about you? Sunday, we will look for the places where we might know and see God.
Exodus 14:10-14, 21-29. What can we say? At the last and least likely moment, the Israelites find themselves delivered. What does this passage tell us about our God and the trajectory for each of us, enfolded in God’s mercy? Sunday we’ll talk about it.
Thanks to all those who donated powdered milk over the past 2 months! ALIVE was thrilled with the donation of 35 boxes of milk!! You have helped to make a difference in the lives of 35 families in our community. Thanks for living out Jesus’ love to others in your gifts!
Consider going through your closets, and asking your friends and work colleagues to donate good, clean used coats to the more than 600 people in need! Bring your coats to Saint James by Sunday, November 9th! Donations of new hats and gloves would be helpful too!
Genesis 39. Joseph has been sold into slavery by his brothers (and you think you have challenges with your siblings!). He finds himself in Egypt and working in the house of a powerful Egyptian. Certainly this is not where Joseph expected he’d end up. I guess he could’ve given up- from Dad’s favorite son to slave in Egypt. There are certainly simple lessons of perseverance we could glean from this story but what do we need to hear from this story now? Find out Sunday!
Exodus 12:1-14. There is so much the biblical story can show us about ourselves, the world, and, of course, God. What will we discover together this weekend?
