Midvar!


New sermon series.  Told you about it in the newsletter, so I won't rehearse everything I said there here.  But, I did want to lay out the preaching schedule for that series.

Here it is:

July-September 2012

1.  July 22        Numbers 9:15-23             Follow the Yellow Brick Road.

2.  July 29        Numbers 10:33-11:15     Manna-Loaf.

3.  Aug 05        Numbers 13:1-3, 17-20, 25-33, 14:1-10     A Failure to Launch.

4.  Aug 26        Numbers 14:11-45           No Penalties; Only Consequences.

5.  Sept 02       Numbers 17:1-13             A Word About Grumbling.

6.  Sept 09       Numbers 21:4-9               The Bronze Serpent.

7.  Sept 16       Numbers 27:12-23          On The Brink.

As you look up these passages, you're going to realize that I am not going to be able to cover a number of familiar events in the book that are somewhat well-known, such as the "Nazirite Vow" and the story behind Aaron's benediction in Numbers 6; the appointing of the seventy elders to help out Moses; a number of details about spying out the Promised Land; the rebellion of Korah, Dathan and Abiram; and most significantly, Balaam and his donkey -- the talking donkey!  I really wanted to preach on that episode!  So, what I have decided is that I will come back later in 2013 and do a special mini-series (3 sermons) on it.  Maybe I'll call it, The Revenge of Eeyore!

Nah, just kidding.

(The title, not the series.)
