October 26, 2014: “Hello, God… Are You There?”

Posted on : Oct 23rd, 2014 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

Have you ever wondered “where is God”?  And just when you need God beside you, you may not feel God.  And then, maybe you  get mad at God….what does that do? …does that drive God further away?

On Sunday we will explore our selves and our relationship with God.  Is God close? far away?   In Exodus, God appeared to Moses in a burning bush and named Godself “I am who I am.”  What if God, in your life, was like a TREE?  Would that tree be full of fruit?  Would that tree be barren?   How far from that tree would you be?  Together we will look at how we relate to God.  That will tell us a little bit about how we feel about our Selves and how important  other people are to us in our current situation.  Stay tuned.

Come prepared to participate in a Guided Imagery Meditation.  We will have fun together !!!

Blessings,

Rev. Lisa Bove

 

~ This Sunday’s Scripture ~

Exodus 3: 1-14

From a burning bush, God calls to Moses, and Moses asks God, “Who Are You?”

Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of God appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; and Moses looked, and lo, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I must turn aside and look at this great sight, and see why the bush is not burnt.” When God saw that he had turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.” Then God said, “Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” And God said, “I am the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham and Sarah, the God of Isaac and Rebekah, and the God of Jacob and Rachel and Leah.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

Then God said, “I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt; and I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings, and I have come to deliver them from the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey. Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt”. But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?

“If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is the name of that God?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “Tell them, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’”
