Right Here, Right Now

 

It is a great honor to be here with all of you today.  I am so grateful for this opportunity to worship together, to learn together, to remember together, and to draw inspiration from this gathering that we will carry into our homes and into the community.  Thank you to Rev. Harvey and to all of the faithful leaders of Mt. Olivet for your warm embrace and welcome.  I am especially grateful to all of the gifted musicians from both the temple and the church that have joined together to create something holy and beautiful.

God informs Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah will be destroyed, though Abraham attempts to convince God otherwise. God tells Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. Abraham obliges but is told that it was a test of faith and offers a ram to sacrifice instead.
