What do we do with a dreamer? – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 August 13, 2023

Our scripture today focuses on the story of Joseph, son of Jacob, and his brothers’ decision to sell him into slavery. In this text, the conspiring brothers describe Joseph as a “dreamer” before they do the unthinkable and ship him off to Egypt. This raises a couple of interesting questions – what do we do with dreamers and what role do dreamers play in God’s great story of redemption?
