'Our own' Old Testament Prof. Preaches this Sun., 08.24

Bob, not Adam, is our Old Testament Preacher this Sunday!

Bob Robinson is known at Old First as, well, Bob. But each Advent we get to see another side of him… how his vocation has played out as a Lutheran Theological Seminary’s Anna Burkhalter Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew. We see this side of him as he leads the well-loved Advent Bible Study during the Adult Forum, leading us through the prophetic readings of the Hebrew Scriptures that we as Christians hear promising the arrival of our Christ. Old, old stories that each year he cracks open for us and makes them fresh and new. It’s always one of the highest attendance periods for Adult Forum.

This Sunday, he will be our guest preacher. His sermon is titled, “Starts in Left Field,” and it will be based on the birth of Moses. (The lessons for the day will be Exodus 2:1-10 and Matthew 16: 13-20.) Bob’s hoping to exhort us to trust in the work of God… let it be your confidence.

Come out and hear the sermon; it’s sure to make you think and feel, maybe even believe a little more…
