Theme: Like all human families, the first families of our faith tradition were not perfect. They had their share of failure and struggles, just like everyone else. But throughout it all, they knew the abiding presence of the Lord God was with them—perhaps most clearly known during moments of difficult decision, rites of passage, and periods of painful transition.
And while God didn’t intervene in such a way that God’s people were spared from the pain of being human, God never abandoned them.
Just as God never abandons us. The good news is that God is with us.
“God is our refuge and our strength, A very present help in trouble.”
Scripture: Genesis 22:1-14
