Name after name is called off in Genesis 10. God told Noah that his sons and family were to be fruitful and multiply. It seems that they did just that! As I was reading it though I felt like something was missing. Read on to hear my thoughts on Genesis 10.
Does Genesis 9 give us our first glimpse of the death penalty? As I was reading this chapter in Genesis, I reread it over and over again! Did we use this Bible passage to enforce the death penalty? Do you know? I am constantly surprised at what I read. What have you been surprised to read as we read the Bible together?
What’s the magic number in Genesis 7? As we read this chapter there is only one number that appears repeatedly. You guessed it! 7. It appears in the title. It appears in the number of animals God instructed Noah to put on board the boat that were approved for eating and sacrifice.

It’s official, my favorite member of the clergy at St. George’s is leaving this Monday. Over the last three years Mother Blessed Sacrament (AKA Mother) has helped me grow spiritually and emotionally. I’ve learned from her and her actions that God really does not give us anything more than we can handle! Prayer is so powerful y’all! When I would seek advice on aspects of my life that were weighing heavy on my heart, she’d reassure me that God was working it out and that she’d pray for me. This weekend I got to thinking, who prays for her?
