Isaac’s son, Jacob, tricks his older brother Esau out of his blessing and birthright, and has to flee for his life. On his journey, he encounters God in a dream, and receives a renewed promise of land and descendants. Join us this Sunday at St. Paul’s as we explore this passage of Scripture together, and ponder how God makes promises to all kinds of people. Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:00am, and worship begins at 10:00am. We hope to see you here!
Narrative Lectionary Daily Readings
The Narrative Lectionary focuses our congregation on one Scripture reading each Sunday. Below are some suggested readings to make connections between this past Sunday’s and next Sunday’s texts or to examine related stories in Scripture (from the fine folks at www.clergystuff.com). Further resources for reflection can be found in the inserts in Sunday’s bulletin. (Updated Mondays.)
