Trusting God when you're faced with losing everything

June 23rd, 2020

In this week's sermon, Ryan Ahlgrim, pastor of First Mennonite Church in Richmond, Virginia, asks the thought-provoking question, "Will we trust God when we are faced with the loss of everything?" Ahlgrim preaches from Genesis 22:1-14, a disturbing, yet important Old Testament passage in which God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. As you listen, put yourself in Abraham's shoes, the shoes of an ancient Jew, and discover what you can learn from Abraham's faith during an impossible situation.
