Over the summer months, we are going to be looking at a number of characters featured in Old Testament stories, from Genesis through Judges. We’ll pay attention to how their interactions with God and the people around them both revealed and shaped their character, and how our own character is revealed and takes shape over time.

Genesis 25:19-26a; Ephesians 4:22-24
