God’s promises for future generations dominate the scriptures chosen for the second Sunday in Lent. Genesis 17 is the covenant God makes with Abraham – a covenant God initiates and directs. God’s promise of offspring for Abraham, offspring who will participate in the continuing covenant, as God has promised to continue the covenant into the future. Abraham and Sarah will bear a child; God fulfills the promise of the covenant. What is thought to be impossible or absurd may prove to be precisely God’s plan.
In Psalm 22, the writer calls forth praise of God for God’s dominion over all people. Like Abraham and Sarah’s offspring, everyone is to join in serving God. God’s promise to future generations is celebrated as the promise of deliverance, now and for the future.
God’s promises intensify as we seek the covenant and reflect on God’s relationship with us during the Lenten season.
We continue on…Zooming together in worship as we seek to praise God and be in God’s presence.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated on Sunday, March 7th during the 10:30 am worship service.
The church is now open for Sunday Worship services at 10:30 am and will be following all the established protocols to keep our community safe during this time of worship together.
