We invite all to join us on Sunday, July 15 at 11:00 a.m. as we hear the final sermon in a three-part series, Minor Prophets, Major Voices. The series is exploring the role of Micah, Zechariah and Habakkuk in our faith history.
Our services are open to all who wish to join us.
They are traditional in style with warm greetings, fine musical contributions and sermons based on scripture and how the lessons we learn apply to our lives today.
Student Pastor Ben Fitzgerald-Fye will deliver the sermon Minor Prophets, Major Voices: Habakkuk based on readings from Habakkuk 2:6-20 and 3:2-19.
Habakkuk is another short but fascinating piece of our Old Testament Scripture. Habakkuk could be described more as a series of lament poems, like Psalms, than a series of prophecies. This is a short, but powerful documentation of a back and forth conversation with God about the state of things, the impending invasion by Babylon. Habakkuk laments the coming of Babylon because of their many sins and God responds by essentially explaining that human nature leads us all to become Babylon eventually. Are the sins of Babylon our sins too? Habakkuk also refers to the kind of hope we find in other prophetic writing. Sin, punishment, hope, and restoration cycle through this work. And yet, can we trust in God the way Habakkuk does?
We also invite you to join us for fellowship following the service in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary.
See you on Sunday!
