Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Don’t Stone the Messenger!”

Trust in God’s life-giving provision wasn’t easy for Israel, and it’s not easy for us, either. Similarly, it’s tough to listen to a leader who’s part of, yet separate from, the group being led. But God keeps showing up among the people and their God-ordained, God-called leaders and making a way out of no way, bringing life-giving water from arid places. But only when conditions are ripe for it: the key to successful community in times of trial is trusting in God and working together, not against each other. How can we as a faith community bring life from arid places together in this season?

Sermon Series: August 23–October 18,2020

For the next few weeks, we will explore the Exodus narratives together, experiencing anew together the liberating story of a liberating God. Come and join us on this journey with the Hebrews out of Egypt!

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Do You Trust Me?”

People complain in church. They complain about church. They complain about life in general. That’s just part of being people. We all do it from time to time. So, it’s not unusual that the Israelites wandering in the wilderness in adverse conditions after their release from slavery in Egypt were a little…grumbly. But when God made a promise through Moses to care for them and they still didn’t trust – that’s when things went awry. God knows we’re going to grumble, but God asks us to believe – to trust that God will provide. We don’t travel any of our paths alone, and we do have a God who can rain bread from heaven, divide loaves and fishes, and make sure that we are cared for. But trusting God with all of who we are and discerning how best to respond – that’s our hard work of being God’s children. God is asking us: Do you trust me?

Scriptures include: Exodus 14:19-31 & 15:1b-11, 20-21

Sermon Series: August 23–October 18,2020

For the next few weeks, we will explore the Exodus narratives together, experiencing anew together the liberating story of a liberating God. Come and join us on this journey with the Hebrews out of Egypt!

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “A New Identity”

When Israel was freed from Egypt after the final plague, Pharaoh was yet still holding animosity against them and sent the Egyptian army after the fleeing refugees, at this point out of simple spite. But God had more powerful acts to perform – Moses parted the Red Sea so the Hebrews could cross on dry land, and the Egyptians were lost in the waves behind them. Walking through these waters proved that God was on the side of the Hebrews and paved the way for Israel to find its new identity as God’s people. But of course, we know this was only a first step – like a baptism is a first step in a faith journey, the Hebrews walked through these waters and came out freed by God, but they took much longer to shed their old ways of living and live into that freedom as God’s people. We too have a new identity, a new freedom, but in humility, we should realize just how much more we have yet to learn after we pass through the waters.

Sermon Series: August 23–October 18,2020

For the next few weeks, we will explore the Exodus narratives together, experiencing anew together the liberating story of a liberating God. Come and join us on this journey with the Hebrews out of Egypt!

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Liberation Remembered”

Many of us know the basic story of the plagues of Egypt – of Pharaoh’s hardened heart against the Hebrews – of the ultimate plague of the deaths of the firstborn in Egypt unless blood marked the doorposts to signal to Death to pass over that home. We probably heard the story growing up in church or watching contemporary movies about Moses. But I doubt we marked it quite like the Jews were ordered to in our passage this week. Taking seriously this remembrance is a long tradition for the Jewish people – this Exodus story of liberation is one around which the rest of the scriptures – the law, the prophets – all focus. We cannot separate the story of God’s people from this event.

 

Neither can we separate our own Christian story from God’s story of liberation. From the time of Moses to the ultimate liberation in Christ, we are called to remember God’s deliverance from evil and oppression. On a Communion Sunday, we too remember our own liberation in Christ. Let’s learn from our ancestors in the faith to remember well.
