Strange Turns (Genesis 12-50)

Posted: 26 April 2013

Life is a winding and troubled road and in Genesis 12-50 we meet characters such as Abraham and Joseph, Hagar and Leah whose stories help us feel in our bones (not just know in our heads) that God is for us in all these strange turns.

This Sunday we are starting a new series on this wonderful part of the Bible called Strange Turns: How God is with us in the strange turns of life.

Below is the breakdown of the series. We hope you can join us.
