"The Ladder & the Dream" - Genesis 28:10-22 (What is Your Name?)

This week, Jacob's spiraling story and chaotic life hit rock bottom as he curls up to sleep on a rock in the middle of nowhere. Having fled his family and a brother that wants to kill him, Jacob stumbles into an unknown place and falls asleep in exhaustion. However, in that place of darkness, Jacob encounters a ladder, angels, and the God of his family in a monumental and life-altering dream. This God encounter forever changes the course of his life and begins the process of restoring a new identity for Jacob. This backwards ladder redefines everything we assume about earth, heaven, and the way in-between.
