Stories of the Kingdom
Stories are a part of all of our lives from the time we are very young. Ursula Le Guin once wrote,
"There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories."
If you look at the newspaper headlines in an airport or in a grocery store, they’re telling us the stories of that kingdom/city; the stories that can tell us something about what is valued there as well as what is despised. And, in much the same way, the parables of Jesus - found in the gospel accounts of the NT - are one of the ways Jesus tells us the stories of the coming Kingdom of heaven (the Kingdom He inaugurated at His first coming and that will fully come when He returns); telling us about what is valued thereas well as what is despised.
Beginning on Sunday June 10, we embark on a 13-week teaching series through the parables of Jesus: the Stories of the Kingdom. We'd love to have you join us!
