A sermon preached by the Rev. Roger Scott Powers at Light Street Presbyterian Church in Baltimore on Sunday, June 29, 2014. Genesis 22:1-14
The story of Abraham and Isaac is one of the most dramatic stories in the Bible. And yet, in my fourteen years of parish ministry, I have never once preached on it. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone preach on it!
As the PPF works to strengthen our witness to Jesus Christ in the PC(USA), we begin a new and exciting partnership with seven intentional peace communities. Because there are many ways across the church to live in Christian community outside of traditional congregational life, we desire to connect with and support intentional peace communities involved in inspiring peace work across the country.
