This Sunday at Bethel
ó 12th Sunday after Pentecost, Aug. 7, 2016
After God makes a covenant with Abraham, God immediately directs Abraham to move to another land.
ďAnd Abraham set out, not knowing where he was going (Hebrews 11:8).
Thatís what faith in God is likeóitís setting out for a new land, even though we canít say much about that new land. Weíre only on the way toward it.
Nevertheless, we trust that God is the one leading us.
Having committed himself to God, Abraham doesnít turn back. And neither do we. We trust God to see us through the days of uncertainty, and to
show us the new land God has promised. That Ďs the promise for us as individuals baptized into Christ, and itís the promise to us as a congregation.
See you in church,
