Stories That Shape Us: Lead Toward Heaven – August 28, 2022

“Stories That Shape Us: Lead Towards Heaven”
Text: 2 Kings 2
Today, we look at the story where Elijah is taken up by God in a whirlwind and Elisha takes his place as a prophet to God’s people. In many ways it is similar to the transition from Moses to Joshua. During transitions in our lives, we are afraid that we cannot measure up to the faith of others that we knew. However, we are invited to live in the grace of the Holy Spirit and to pick up Jesus’ mantle of encouraging others to experience God and bring healing to our world.
