 INTRODUCTION TO THE SUMMER SERMONS

The lectionary this year leads us to a series of stories from the book of Genesis – foundational stories about the people who first heard God’s promise and followed God’s call to establish Israel as a nation, as a people of faith in the one living God. This is after Adam and Eve and after Noah, but before Moses.
 Jacob’s Dream
by Rev. Kathryn Henry
Jul 20, 2014
Last week we heard how Jacob, one of our ancestors in the faith, conned his brother Esau out of his birthright. Esau traded his family position and inheritance for a bowl of lentil stew. Since then, Jacob pulled another fast one, this time on his old and now-blind father Isaac. Jacob had gotten the birthright, but he still needed his father’s blessing, which Isaac was expecting to bestow upon the older twin Esau. Jacob’s mother Rebekah – who loved Jacob over Esau and who knew God’s plan for Jacob to become the father of the nation Israel – orchestrated the deception.

Last week we heard the lovely story of the coming together of Isaac and Rebekah – how, under God’s care and guidance, she was found for him by Abraham’s servant in the country where Abraham had come from; how she became Isaac’s wife; how he loved her. That lovely story was only an interlude it seems.  For today we return to the tensions and conflicts that pervade the relationships in this family of Abraham, from whom the three great monotheistic religions are derived.

Everything we do depends on love:  love between partners, love in family, love among friends and neighbors and especially the steadfast and extraordinary love of God for each one of us – the love we know through the Sacrament of Holy Communion, which we celebrate today.

 Isaac

We sort of met Isaac last week, when he was only about three years old and Abraham, his father, held a great festival to celebrate his being weaned from his mother Sarah. The passage dealt with Isaac’s half brother Ishmael, and his mother Hagar, being sent away so that God’s promise would be fulfilled: Abraham and Sarah, even in their old age, would produce the son who would carry the line to produce a great nation blessed by God.

God had promised that a son would be born to Abraham and that Abraham would be the father of a great nation, his descendants as many as the stars in the sky.  But Abraham and his wife Sarah were both very old – so how could this come to pass?  But God said not to worry.

 June

Being prayed for is a powerful and deeply moving experience. I know that many of you have just recently felt that power as you have faced surgeries and medical tests, as you have endured prolonged, agonizing watching and waiting for a loved one to die, and then the grief. You have been dealing with major life decisions and at the same time, niggling, petty concerns. The prayers of others on your behalf have helped carry you through these times.
 Steady As You Go
by Rev. Kathryn Henry
May 18, 2014
God will keep us safe, secure and joyful, at peace in the world. Faith in Jesus Christ – the way, the truth and the life – sustains us through all our years upon this earth. The Holy Spirit lives in and abides with us. Buried in John’s convoluted and sometimes mysterious wordiness, this is the straightforward message for today, and for all time.
