Announcements, July 21, 2017
I’m really looking forward to this Sunday! We’ll be in Joshua 2 (and a bit of chapter 6 as well) studying a pivotal moment in the history of God’s people, when they finally put into motion plans to conquer the Promised Land. “Conquer” is probably a strong term, because the Israelites barely do anything. Rather, the Lord gives them the land by defeating their enemies—his enemies—the Canaanites of Jericho. The entire city is destroyed save one person, a prostitute named Rahab. We’ll see why she was spared (and what that means for us today) on Sunday, but go ahead and read Joshua 2:1–24 & 6:15–25 so you have your bearings!
Grace and peace,
