A Terrible Test of Faith

A sermon preached by the Rev. Roger Scott Powers
at Light Street Presbyterian Church in Baltimore
on Sunday, June 29, 2014.
Genesis 22:1-14

The story of Abraham and Isaac is one of the most dramatic stories in the Bible. And yet, in my fourteen years of parish ministry, I have never once preached on it. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone preach on it!

Poem "Amazing Peace" by Maya Angelou

Amazing Peace: A Christmas Poem
By Dr. Maya Angelou

Thunder rumbles in the mountain passes
And lightning rattles the eaves of our houses.
Flood waters await us in our avenues.

Snow falls upon snow, falls upon snow to avalanche
Over unprotected villages.
The sky slips low and grey and threatening.

We question ourselves.
What have we done to so affront nature?
We worry God.
Are you there? Are you there really?
Does the covenant you made with us still hold?
