fbcsermon_005-elijah-widowDuring the summer this year we are reading through many of the stories in the Bible from the lives of Elijah and his successor, Elisha.

God continued to reveal himself and more and more of what it meant to live in God’s way to these two great prophets of ancient Israel, God’s spokesmen.

If this Sunday’s Old Testament reading appeared in the evening news it might be headlined as “Desperate Widow Strikes Oil!” The prophet Elisha, or to be more precise, God, acting through Elisha, miraculously rescues a widow from financial disaster.

It’s a very old story – about 3000 years old. So what does it have to do with us today? Good question! You’re invited to join us at 10.00 a.m. to hear an answer.
