Family Service Sermon, The Rev. Matthew A. Welsch: “What Are You Doing Here, Elijah?”

June 19, 2022

Preaching at our Family Worship service, Father Matt opened with a simple question: “When you get scared, what do you do?” The strategies of our youngest parishioners ranged from staying hydrated, to hugging furry friends, to hiding.

Today’s reading is also about someone being afraid: “God’s important spokesperson”, the prophet Elijah. After running away and hiding in a cave, he heard God speaking to him. “God asked Elijah to step out of the cave and pay attention.” The reading is 1 Kings 19:8-15.
