Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! Reading the Bible can be a challenging experience, and particularly when there are stories that feel at odds with what we know of God’s love and believe of God’s mercy. This is especially true of this and next week’s lessons from Genesis. So, I invite you to listen to familiar stories with a new lens and to bring your own questions. With Abraham’s “servant Hagar” and their son Ishmael, we especially have a different lens for understanding one of the great religious divides in the world even today. How might we come to a place of wide welcome and greater mercy ourselves with some closer reading? Our burgeoning summer choir is something wonderful to hear, as well!
Blessings and peace, Lisa
