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!
