God's promises to Abram

Scripture lesson: Genesis 15:1-8 Focus word: Questioning Abram has been faithful in following God's lead since he was called to do so in Genesis 12, but it's getting more difficult. God's promises to Abram of many descendants and a land to call their own seem so far away.

To Be or Not to Be ... Be Quiet

March 3 Holy Communion
To Be or Not to Be… Be Quiet Mark 9:2-9 (NLT)
“Then a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, ‘This is my dearly loved Son. Listen to him.’” vs. 7 Peter, James and John were shocked and scared by the transfiguration of Jesus. Peter attempted to calm everyone’s nerves by filling the space with words and a suggested activity. However, instead of acknowledging his words or suggested activity God simply claims Jesus again as his beloved Son and says, “Listen to him.” Are we ever quiet enough to be good listeners to Jesus?… to each other?
