Genesis 11:1-9 is the origin story of languages and, therefore, cultures. God’s work of scattering the peoples multiplies the spread of humanity on the created world. At Pentecost, the Holy Spirit revealed that God’s blessing is on every language and culture of world. God’s desire is for the Good News of God’s Kingdom to be known in each one of God’s beloved people groups! God is at work scattering the Good News among the people!

Psalm 30 delights in a God who heals, who pulls up (as water from a well), who brings back from the brink of the grave. Today’s sermon takes a serious look at healing when our prayers don’t seem to have worked that way. (We will miss you, Rachel Held Evans!) “Pulled up (from the sea)” by Pastor Carmen Horst Okanya
