Are You Stuck in a Cave? 1 Kings 19:11-16 Sunday July 17, 2016


1 Kings 19:11-16

1 Kings 19:11-16New Living Translation (NLT)

11 “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave.

And a voice said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

14 He replied again, “I have zealously served the Lord God Almighty. But the people of Israel have broken their covenant with you, torn down your altars, and killed every one of your prophets. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me, too.”

15 Then the Lord told him, “Go back the same way you came, and travel to the wilderness of Damascus. When you arrive there, anoint Hazael to be king of Aram. 16 Then anoint Jehu grandson of Nimshi to be king of Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from the town of Abel-meholah to replace you as my prophet.

A member told me last Sunday that she knew very little about scripture and besides getting to know people in small groups, she felt the Open Table helps her learn the historical perspective of the scripture passage and how the scripture might relate to our lives today.  She she has time to digest and has a lot more thoughts and questions.

We bring our own dinners but dessert is provided.

You do not have to be a member of this church or faith to attend.  You can drop in just for one Wednesday, or several Wednesday nights. This event, like all our events, is open to the public.
