Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper
Genesis 37:2-8, 45:1-8  Romans 8:28
Sermon: Journey through Genesis: God Behind the Scenes, Again!
We move on to the stories of Joseph, Jacob’s favorite son (a poorly-kept family secret). To get the full story, you’d need to read Genesis 37-50, the basis for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the wonderful Rice-Webber musical seen by many. We’ll sketch the story this Sunday, which includes the improbable sequence of events that find Joseph as the right-hand man of the Pharoah in Egypt after being sold into slavery by his brothers in Canaan. As fate (and God) would have it, the brothers meet again in Egypt, but only Joseph is aware they have been reunited. We too can be surprised by such unlikely intersections in life…
