Wrestling with the Angel
In the book of Genesis, there is a well-known story about how Jacob wrestled with an angel through the night and would not release his hold until he received the angel’s blessing. This Sunday, Rev. Joanna Gabriel will reference this story while considering the blessings available to us within the challenges of our current times.
Rev. Joanna’s life and work experience include serving as the Director of Education and Worldwide Communications for the ReCreation Foundation, supporting the work of Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God books. She is also an ordained New Thought minister and, serving in a chaplaincy capacity, has had the opportunity to support patients and families in a hospital setting. Rev. Gabriel currently serves as the Spiritual Advisor for the Unity church on beautiful Whidbey Island.
