When Facing the Unknown

Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting Church http://lpuc.org.au

Welcome to Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting online church on the nineteen’s Sunday after Pentecost, 11th October 2020. This week’s Bible reading, Exodus 32 continues the story of a people who, having left the oppression of Egypt, have forgotten their cries to God for freedom and instead complain to God about the mess they are in. They have complained about food and water, and now, when Moses is delayed returning from the mountain, they go to Aaron and demand Aaron to make idols for them to worship. It seems that the people have forgotten that God is always with them, even if they no longer see the pillar of fire or the cloud that travelled with them as assurance of God’s presence. They want something tangible, something they can hold and see – a golden calf to be right in front of them.
