Genesis 8:1-10:32, Matt 4:12-25, Psalm 4:1-8, Prov 1: 20-23 The flood ends, the land dries, and God makes a new covenant. The sign of the rainbow is a promise “that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the […]

If you have not yet watched, please watch and listen. This is the story I referenced in church on Sunday morning. It is easy to bring our own bias and filter, but the events at Ferguson this week are spectacles and hearing aids for us to better see and hear of a history of discrimination, […]
