Pressing on in Hebrews 12 this week we find sort of a bad news/good news section. The bad news is that we will all face hard times. The good news abounds. God is still sovereign, he disciplines his own, and the very discipline we may dread proves we are children well loved by our Father. Oh, and, we often misunderstand the idea of discipline.

The closing exhortation to the list of examples of faith at work in Hebrews 11 is in chapter 12. We touched on it last week but will be going back this week for a closer look. Running the race and looking to Jesus make great themes for a communion Sunday.

This week we will finish our studies in Hebrews 11 and open the door a crack on chapter 12. The writer hurries along saying “time will fail me if…” but jams a lot into some short comments. Challenging perspectives on faith past, present, and future.

We are continuing in Hebrews 11. I know we have slowed progress though Hebrews a lot but there is just so much great content packed into the chapter. This week three impossible situations that show nothing is impossible to God and the challenge and value of faith.

We move to one of the best known, and these days most reviled, stories in the Bible – God’s call to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. I managed to avoid calling the sermon “Highway 61 Revisited” because I believe I see a larger and more important message in this and the several following verses. We’ll see what you think Sunday.

I can remember when Noah's Ark at Kennywood was a bit disorienting and rather frightening. But, if you read the story it is, albeit very loosely, based on in a fresh way you are certain to find that even more disorienting and frightening. The just wrath of God unleashed on a world deaf to the appeals of the "preacher of righteousness" he sent them. An old man called to build something no one had even heard of, much less seen, to save himself and his family from a disaster no one could imagine nor believe. Old Noah is next up in the line of faith. Then Abraham. Father Abraham!

Last week we began our studies in Hebrews 11, sometime called the "roll-call of faith" or other similar titles. We looked at several characteristics of faith and I may have gotten a few people fired up for a Shelly Pie with an illustration too near lunch time. Connie and I had a good ride from the Waterfront and then went up the hill to Mineo's, another favorite. Three days later City Paper declared Mineo's the best pizza in Pittsburgh. Coincidence? Don't think so! Anyway, this week we look at the first two intriguing examples of faith in action and more characteristics of faith. Abel and Enoch are not the names that come quickest to mind for OT heroes of faith and yet here they are, leading the list.
