Offer It Up


This painting by Rembrandt is titled the “Sacrifice of Isaac.” It shows a key moment in a terrible story, when the angel of the Lord intervenes to tell Abraham to NOT sacrifice his son Isaac.

This is one of those stories that makes people want to toss the whole of the First Testament into the round file. It’s dark, it’s strange, and it has a really important message for us today, especially when placed in the context of Jesus’ “sacrifice.”  Yes, I put that in quotes because that’s a whole story unto itself.  Join us this Sunday for part 3 of “I Look to the Mountains” online and in person at 10 a.m.
