FALL SERMON SERIES: The Parables of Jesus
About one third of what Jesus taught, he taught in parables. A parable is a short, succinct story that is instructional. They are analogies. Parables are used often to illustrate a universal truth. Jesus used stories about lots of brothers, servants, masters, and different kinds of treasure. He talks about pearls, coins, nets, seeds, wheat and tares. There are stories about virgins - both wise and foolish, and tales of vineyard workers, and farmers. Sometimes these stories are easy to decipher, and sometimes not. But they always have something to teach us still. Together we will learn more about those ancient stories by digging deep and understanding better the world in which they were first shared. Simple stories. Yet, they offer us divine guidance for living. THE SERIES BEGINS ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2019.
Please join us. The joy of church is that there is no prerequisite class. We gather to learn each week in worship!
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." ~ Matthew 13:44
