About this Sermon
As we continue reading in Genesis about Jacob’s liminal experiences, we learn that he found himself in between a rock and a hard place. On the eve of meeting his brother for the first time in 20 years, instead of having a simple restless night, he spends the entire evening wrestling God. At the end of the night, God changes Jacob’s identity to Israel. How might we find ourselves in a struggle, in between a rock and a hard place, as we grapple with figuring out our identity as new creations in Christ? And how might we continue to wrestle with understanding our new identity?

The Summer Between: Adventures in Liminality
liminality [lim-uh-nal-i-tee]: a state of transition between one stage and the next.
The Summer of 2020 finds us in the threshold between what was and what is yet to come. In the midst of a global pandemic, we are somewhere between lockdown and vaccine. In terms of civic life, we are somewhere between unrest and revolution.
What do people of faith do in liminal times like these?
Join First Baptist Church this summer for hope and perspective as Pastor Lisa Hood takes us on a journey through the scriptures, discovering how our spiritual ancestors navigated liminal times, and applying biblical truths for the living of these days.
