Isaac Loved Rebekah

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Children's moment, Holy communion, Sermon, Sunday service

In our sermon series using texts from Genesis with the theme “Family Matters,” today’s story is of Abraham’s servant, making a trip to find Isaac a wife.  Much as Abraham had done a generation before, Rebekah trusts the direction of God and leaves her land to go somewhere she has never been to become the bride of someone she doesn’t know and bear a nation.  When she arrives, never having seen Isaac and he never having seen her, the text says that Isaac took her as his wife, “and he loved her,” a simple and most powerful statement for us in our moment.  (NOTE: We usually post the 11 o’clock service, but with the COVID-19 threat we are having only the 8:45 service today, and that is the service we are posting.  NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
