The final week of a six-week series called, Returning to the Promise. This week, we look at the story of Elijah. Elijah finds himself opposed to King Ahab and his wife Jezebel. During this time, Elijah learns of God's providence. God continues to provide in times of doubt, struggle, and hardships. God is a god who sends rain, gives food and raises the dead. God is a living god who is present and dwells with humanity and creation.
"Returning to the Promise" is a seven-week series based on stories from the Old Testament. Often, we are told that the Old Testament is full of judgement, wrath, and anger. But the Old Testament describes the very character of a loving God who continues to return to the faithful promise of unconditional and ongoing love for all of creation. It is why we first ground ourselves in "God is love" from 1 John 4.
