Series: A Dysfunctional Family

May 12, 2024 | Rev. Carrie Binnie

Passage: Genesis 26:1-16

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I’m turning into my mother/father!”? There may be moments when we might want to mirror the attitudes and behaviors of our parents. But there are other times when we don’t want the sentiment to ring true at all. What does Scripture say about this and how do we keep from repeating our parents' mistakes?

Series Information

Is your family a bit dysfunctional at times? You’re not alone! Starting all the way back in the book of Genesis, we see family dynamics that carry forward dysfunctional traits across generations. Despite this reality, God still chose these people, our ancestors of the faith, to be God’s people. As we seek to learn from the ancient stories and apply our learnings to life today, we’ll discover a hope grounded in the unmerited grace of our Creator.
