God is intimately involved with human life, cares for us and has a vision far longer than our own. In Scripture (Genesis 16 and 21) which is known for its focus on the “chosen people,” we have a very special promise to the “not-chosen.” God’s promised blessings, that came true for Ishmael and Isaac and their many children, are true for us also. We can trust that in and through, with or in spite of, circumstances, God acts towards God’s purpose blessing all people.
The songs are “The God of Abraham Praise” and “Faith of the Martyrs.” The sermon, service and this week’s tweets reference Jewish Study Bible Notes, Everett Foxes, Terence Fretheim, and Kathryn Schifferdecker.
