No Judgments, Just Jesus

Ordinary Time 18 – Golden Calf (Exodus 32:1-14)

Days after entering into covenant with God, the people of God craft an idol while Moses is away on Mount Sinai. God threatens to destroy the people, but Moses intercedes on their behalf and God relents. This story has much to teach us about our proneness to idolatry and about what faithful and faithless leadership looks like.

Opening Hymn: For the Beauty of the Earth
