The Second Sunday of Advent

What a lovely surprise with this Advent snow this weekend! Though the disruption to our plans and routine can be frustrating, these are the moments when we hear the Lord ask us the question, “Where are you?” Our theme for Sunday morning was, “Love”.

(I can’t help thinking that the pyrography may have been a little prophetic. The snow hanging on the pine trees in Asher’s wood burning is mirrored out the church’s west window.)

We looked at Genesis 22 and Abraham’s sacrifice of Isaac. Adah’s portrait captures the moment when the Angel of the Lord calls out to Abraham in verses 11 and 12,

“But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ He said, Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.'”
