We returned to Genesis this week, finishing up Chapter 22 and talking about the death of Sarah and how we use Abraham's example to deal with grief and loss. It is so exciting to have every chair we own full and to see folks hanging out and fellowshipping afterwards. God is so good. Here is the link:
Genesis 23: Gen 23
I will try and get the notes up this week but here are the links for further reading on the tomb of Joseph and the Cave of Macpelah. These aren't deep or scholarly but they have lots of links to pursue if you want to know more.

Keep us in your prayers this week.
Monday is Joshua's 22'st birthday so we want to rejoice with him - Happy Birthday Bud!
