Saying Goodbye is difficult, especially if we know we will never return to the places or people we are leaving. Can you imagine all the emotions Noah felt as he boarded the ark and prepared to leave all that was familiar for a journey alone into an unknown world? An ancient pastor once noted regarding Noah and the ark,
“…the most severe contest of all for Noah was to bid farewell to the world, to renounce society and to bury himself in the ark. The face of the earth was at that time very lovely. It was no light trial for Noah to leave the life to which he had been accustomed during 600 years”
This week we continue our conversations from the Book of Beginnings by discussing Genesis 7. We will consider God’s mercy and grace toward Noah and his family in the midst of a total and complete judgment against the sin and violence which had engulfed the ancient world.
