Sermon: Frozen – The Problem of Isolation

Are rear-entry garages, commute times, customizable mobile devices, and “no soliciting” signs nudging us towards more isolation?  Does the Bible have anything to say about feeling alone?  Does God want something more for our lives?  I weigh in to these questions in the sermon below. 

The text I use for this sermon is Genesis 2:18-22.  It reads:

[18] Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” [19] Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. [20] The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. [21] So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. [22] And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.

(Genesis 2:18-22 ESV)
