Joseph: A Life Beyond the Pit

It seems that Murphy's law is always lurking in our lives, doesn't it? No matter what line we pick at the supermarket the other will move faster, or the traffic when we are late is the worst that it has ever been since the invention of the car. But for many of us we have also had murphy's law moments on a much more serious note. The Company is downsizing and you are going to be part of the 1% that is being laid off, or out of all the kids in the world yours is the one that contracts that disease, or it was your family member that was killed in the drunk driving accident. The list could go on and on. This week we read the story of Joseph and so Sunday I boiled his story down to one singular topic: Forgiveness. Joseph was the poster child for Murphy's law. He must have thought that him and Murphy were roommates with the things that happened in his life. but at the end of the day when Joseph had the opportunity for revenge and justice he chose forgiveness and grace. I invite you to listen to this weeks sermon as one would with fresh ears. Leave your ideas about Joseph, this beloved and and well known Bible character, at the door and take a journey in his shoes as we simply tell his story this week and reflect on the Freedom we find in Forgiveness.
