Sunday's Coming ~ June 28, 2015

Hi-Fi Bulletin Cover lo-resThis week we'll hear from Obadiah. I've never preached on Obadiah! So, this is going to be fun. It's a one-chapter book with only 21 verses. Read it today, and you'll have one Bible book down and 65 to go!

Obadiah's book is really a vision he had from God about Judah's neighbors - people called "Edomites." They are distant relatives to the people Judah, but they did nothing to help Judah when the Babylonians attacked. In fact, they stood by cheering and even joined in the looting.

Studying the book this week left me with two questions: the first is "What is it like to be hung out to dry by someone you know?" The second may surprise you. It did me. In fact, it rocked my world. Lean in with me and listen for it.

Also, Kristin Brouwer and Tara Woodward will share about an experience they are working on with missionary Marlin Vis for a trip to Israel next summer.

See you Sunday,

~Pastor Jon
