The Bible's 9 Big Ideas - Covenant 2

What is the Bible about? What “big ideas” stretch across the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, providing these disparate stories with continuity and integrity? Each month from September through May 2020, our worship will explore one big idea in depth, examining how the idea is introduced and how it deepens and develops. By the end of the series, you will understand the span of the Bible in a whole new way.
In October, we explore COVENANT. The central idea in the Hebrew Scriptures is that God enters into a covenant relationship with God’s people. This relationship, Christians believe, is affirmed in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Another word for covenant is promise; each of us knows how important a promise is. We can name a time in our lives when a promise that was kept gave us life–and when a promise broken took life away. Engaging the stories of Noah, Abraham & Sarah, Moses, and David, and incorporating art, poetry, scripture, music, and sermons, we what it means that God makes–and keeps–life-giving promises. And we ask “what does it mean for us to keep our end of the promise?”
