“Abraham: Faith of our father, faithfulness of our Father” Sermon Series 27th August – 29th October 2023

Paul calls Abraham the father of all who are made righteous through faith. Abraham was not a perfect man nor a role model for good behaviour – the story of Genesis traces many sins and tragedies in his life and the life of his family. But God made an everlasting covenant with Abraham, and he believed. In this series, we will follow the story of this covenant and of faithful God who is true to his promises (and reflect on the priorities of our lives).
