The Lord of Bounty

Genesis 1:20-25:  As we continue through the account of God’s preparation of the earth for humankind, we come to the fifth day when He blesses the earth with living things in air, sea, and land.  The world bursts forth with the evidence of His provision, drawn from His wealth of intrinsic authority, beauty, and power.

The God Who Separates

The God Who Separates

Genesis 1:6-13: Nothing that happens to us occurs by chance, but rather by God’s providence. In our continuing Genesis narrative of God’s acts of creation, we see Him creating earth and sky, land and sea, separating out parts for their intended purpose.

Be a Blessing?

Be a Blessing?

Randy Meyers challenged the congregation with a reading of Genesis 12 that most had not heard. Yes, God promised to bless Abram, but Randy argues that an equally valid reading is that Abram should be a blessing to others. There is support for this in other Scripture passages, including in 1 Peter 3.

Covenant vs Contract?

Covenant vs Contract?

What is the difference between Covenant Theology and Reformed Theology? Well, that is a good and fair question. Pastor Galardi takes up this question and a few more in Sunday’s sermon. He draws primarily from Genesis 12, 15 and 17 but slips in a few more references for good measure.
