Ezekiel: Valley of Dry Bones

This week, we hear from Ezekiel about an experience a prophet has about prophesying to bring dry bones to life. It seems fantastical and hard to imagine.

Accompanying Scripture:
Ezekiel 37:1-14, John 11:25-26

Jacob Wrestles God

In Genesis, Jacob wrestles with God to a standstill. Wrestling with God can be difficult for us, and we may even feel like it’s not allowed. But God welcomes our questions and calls us into a relationship that is a holy struggle between our own desire for control and our willingness to sit in uncomfortable and uncertain places. Listen as Intern Pastor Miriam contemplates our blessed wrestlings with God, faith, and each other.

Accompanying Scripture:
Genesis 32: 9-13, 22-30

Better Together

There are two separate creation accounts in the beginning of the bible – in the first, God creates humans on the last day at seemingly the same time. In the second, God only creates one human, then notices it is not good for the human to be alone. Listen as Pastor Kate contemplates what that means for our lives together. Accompanying Scripture: Genesis 2:4b-25
