delivered by Pastor Pam on September 16, 2018
based on Genesis 7:1-3
Those who find refuge in our churches and spiritual communities are sent to us. The animals showed up on their own to the ark. Church is meant to be a refuge (among other things) and you don’t get to choose who is there with you. That is the beauty (and the challenge) of it – we are all in the boat together. And we are all here to sustain life and love.
