God's Messy Family: Good in the Mess

We bring closure to this series with the story of Abraham and Sarah’s grandson, Joseph. A series of hurtful and messy family decisions that led to great division. Yet, the promise of God leads to good. What can we learn about God in the midst of a messy family situation? What can we learn about God’s family to bring meaning, hope and love to our lives?
