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

Fear

Fear can be a powerful motivator. Just ask Colin Sullivan. A character in Martin Scorsese’s, The Departed, Sullivan lives in fear of being found out as a mole and it causes him to do some things he may not otherwise do.

Pastor Kate explores the theme of fear as found in the beginning of the Exodus story, before Moses is even born. The fear of the new king of Egypt as well as the fear the Israelite Midwives had. She in turn thinks about our own fears and what God is up to in their midst.

Accompanying Scripture:
Exodus 1:7-20
Luke 4:18-19
