Katherine Johnson - August 30, 2020


From favored son, to rejected and enslaved; to right-hand-man; to wrongly imprisoned; and finally landing as a national hero and his family's savior. Joseph. A man that was familiar with the heights and depths that life can offer. Many times throughout Joseph’s story, we are told that “God was with him.” What sets Joseph apart as a hero of faith is that he knew God was with him in the times of prosperity and during the low points. Because of God’s presence, Joseph saw opportunities in the midst of his obstacles; he saw God’s purpose beyond his own pain.

Take the story of Adam & Eve found in the book of Genesis. In the garden of Eden (aka the good 'ol days of perfection), God told this first couple that the growling of their stomachs could be silenced by the fruit from any tree in the entire garden except the tree of the knowledge of good & evil (Genesis 2). Along comes the enemy (snake that he is) and causes them to doubt what God really told them. Off to the tree of the knowledge of good & evil they go, pluck off an apple and..."Crunch!". A very, very familiar story to many of us because we've heard it and read it so many times. For years. But wait. Was it an apple that they ate on that fateful day? Take a look at Genesis 3 and give it another read. Sometimes it's good to hear stories again. Even those we've heard thousands of times before. We might just see or hear something we have never noticed before. We might just have our faith stirred up in a new way by an old story. Welcome to our new sermon series, Marvelous Faith.
