In Family Sunday School this week, we’re talking about resilience, and dandelions growing up through pavement, or in my case, irises growing around the base of my deck. We’re also talking about our obligation to teach our young people that they, too, can grow, regardless — and that they are tougher than they look, as well.
The parables of Jesus are meant to baffle, and by that I mean to shake off our blinders, to reveal something we had not seen before, to think differently about things. Join us this Sunday as we explore Jesus the storyteller — and how primary means of teaching was through the use of parables.
On Sundays, at eleven:eleven downtown, Tom and I have been doing a lot of referencing to the concept of “Shalom”- most often translated as “peace,” but probably best understood as “peace, unity, wholeness of being, harmony.” Shalom is what God wants for you and me and for all creation.I hope you can join us as Tom and I continue our conversations on “Your Pandemic / Post-Pandemic Self” this Sunday as we’re “gonna get down and dirty with the resurrection”
