Scripture: Genesis 12:1-10
Here's a glimpse of his sermon:
In the refugee camp, I remember that every night, as part of my bedtime ritual, I would ask the adults, “Where will we go next?” They didn’t know the answer, but what were they supposed to tell a 4-year-old kid so he wouldn’t be scared? I remember, though, that they dreamed about the new homeland with me. They dreamed about children being able to play on the playground without any worry for their safety. They dreamed about the weather, and about things as foreign as snow! Above all, the adults dreamed that the children would one day be able to go to sleep at night, safe, without nightmares. But I am sure that the adults, after having lived for so many years through the traumatic experiences of war and political turmoil, also understood how the stuff of nightmares could so easily become reality. We all hoped that safety would soon be more than just dreams. For us, hope was found in the dreaming of the future, because the place we left behind was only full of loss - and no hope.
See you Sunday,
