July 31 - Rev Sandy Blake
The essence of the message of God’s prophet, Hosea, is God’s love affair with Israel and with us. But according to Hosea, God rages about Israel’s idolatry and unfaithfulness. And at the same time God speaks tenderly to God’s people with love and compassion. We can reciprocate this kind of love with faithfulness, loving and knowing God intimately --- receiving God into our entire being. God’s incarnate self-expression, Jesus, makes possible this deeper relationship with God, and better knowing the “invisible” God.
