Join us on our Facebook page (link to the right) this Sunday,August 2nd, 2020, for a virtual Service of Word, Prayer, and Communion. We will be reading from the Gospel of Matthew 14:13-21. In this passage, Jesus shows compassion on the crowds that follow him by healing their sick. But it gets late and the crowds must eat. Jesus feeds the crowd of over 5,000 with five loaves and two fish. We will also be looking at Genesis 32:22-31, where Jacob wrestles with the angel of the Lord through the night.
+How do we wrestle with God and faith? When should we wrestle with God and faith?
+How do we understand miracles? Are they solely the act of God, or do we as the faithful have a part in the miraculous beyond simply believing?
+What does it mean to wrestle with God while being faithful in our belief in God?
