“Why is Uncle Jimmy really my uncle, but ‘Uncle’ Bob is not?” I asked my mom in great confusion. As a six-year-old missionary kid who called all the adult missionaries “uncle” or “aunt,” I had a lot to sort out. Living on the other side of the world from actual family meant the people who really were my family and the people around us who we ‘adopted’ as family were given the same title. It was confusing.
Genealogies are pretty dull. Until a will is being read. Then it matters a great deal if your name is mentioned! This week we study the Echoes of Life from Genesis 5. Yes, it’s a genealogy, but the unfamiliar names point to something far more important than a family will. They tell the story of life: what it is for, the best way to use it, and how it is often messed up. As the unfamiliar names are revealed, the reverberations of Eden’s breath of life teaches us how to live life today.
Be sure to listen to the worship set as you prepare for worship.
Come see where you fit in the family tree!
