Questions arise from biblical text

La PORTE – At The Presbyterian Church of La Porte, 307 Kingsbury Ave., Rev. Jane Anabe’s sermon, “Choosing Sides,” is based on Genesis 39:1-23, the story of Joseph and Potiphar’s wife, in which she tries to seduce him, lies about it, and is thrown in prison. Anabe says readers might find it easy to decide whose side they are on, the text shows that God chooses a side and it prompts questions: How does this affect the way Christians think about their own context today and what does choosing to follow Jesus mean?
