From the Chaplain

This semester's Chapel theme is Cup o' Joe: Genesis 37–50.

The Bible begins with Adam, Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but no person in the book of Genesis gets as much attention as Joseph. Nearly one-third of the book is dedicated to the life story of this young dreamer with the colorful coat. For us today at Gordon College, Joseph’s journey points us to a deeper trust in God’s sovereignty and provides lessons in resiliency, insights into living lives of integrity and a beautiful picture of the forgiveness and restoration that comes through Jesus Christ. This semester let’s drink from the “Cup o’ Joe” as we see God’s hope shine brightly in the darkest circumstance.
