This Sunday in worship, we will review some of the preaching themes from the past two years.  We will explore this in light of the Journey of the Ark to Jerusalem, the spine to which the muscles and bones of the Bible are attached, the symbol of God's covenant.  We will trace this journey from before its creation in Genesis, its establishment in Exodus (Moses), its journey through the wilderness and into the Promised Land (Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Saul), its troubled entry into Jerusalem (David) and eventual its loss during the exile (era of the prophets).  We will see how, amidst the anguish of the lost Ark, God promised a "New Covenant," a "New Testament," written on the hearts of people and which lives today, each Sunday morning when we come forward and partake of the cup.
