The Summer Parables: Where Are You in the Story?
Who doesn't love a good story? When we gather friends and family together, one of the most common practices is to tell stories about events we have taken part in. Stories speak to our hearts. They make us laugh and cry, they convict us and challenge us to greater things. Much the same can be said about Parables of Jesus. He told stories that instruct, convict, and challenge us to a new way of thinking as the Kingdom of God has come to earth. Jesus' parables were radical in his day and challenged the deepest convictions of his original hearers. In many ways, those parables opened their eyes and caused them to see a new way of life in the Kingdom of God. The same is true for us today. Interestingly, when we read the parables we are tempted to see other people in the story, but our hope through this summer series is to see ourselves in the story. We invite you to journey through Jesus parables this summer and ask the question: "Where am I in the story?"
We believe, as we hear God's word and ask that question, we will be transformed for the glory of God. Join us this summer!

Relief Bus is meeting on Friday, September 12
Serve with The Relief Bus
The Relief Bus (www.reliefbus.org) consists of two former school buses now customized into mobile resource centers to help the poor and homeless. Friendly faces serve up food and love demonstrating genuine care. This allows volunteers to discover other needs and then connect people to resources and faith-based programs which often transform lives and in many cases actually save lives. The Relief Bus provides a first step to freedom and new life for those in great need.
Volunteers from MBC help prepare the food and then go out on the Relief Bus to Newark, Harlem, and the Bronx on a regular basis - either monthly or more often.
Relief Bus serves again on Friday, September 12 from 5 to 10:30pm
Contact our MBC Volunteer Coordinator Tony Iannacone at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Eyeglass Need at Market Street Mission: Many men who come to the Mission for help have poor eyesight. We are collecting and recycling glasses in an effort to help the men in our recovery program with vision loss. If you no longer need your used glasses, please consider donating them to the Market Street Mission. By donating them you can give a gift of vision to someone in need. You can drop off your used glasses at the front desk of the Mission located at 9 Market Street in Morristown, ship them to MSM or call to arrange for a pick up. Contact Nancy Motley at 973-538-6337.
