"Names & Pillars" - Genesis 35:16-21 (What is your name?)

With an amazing list of God-encounters behind them, Jacob and his family continue their journey home. However, a couple of hours away from Bethlehem, Rachel goes into sudden labor and delivers Jacob his last born son. In the trauma of the birth, Rachel dies and their journey is marked with a mixture of deep sadness and joy, new death and new life. As this sermon series comes to a close, we will watch Jacob take action out of his new identity. He renames and builds pillars. And in doing so, he shows us all what maturity looks like: taking a new identity and actually finishing strong.
