Learning from the Parables

posted in: Save the Date | 0

How do we perceive the Kingdom of God?  God’s kingdom comes apart from our efforts, cannot be controlled or influenced, and can only be received as a gift. In this sense, faith is a lot more like falling in love than deciding on something after thinking about all the facts. Kingdom-faith, like love, is something that comes from the outside and grabs hold of you and fills your soul.

The kingdom of peace, freedom and justice that Jesus was talking about is something that only God can create. We have to recognize that it’s our job to keep on persevering in the planting and tending the gospel seeds of mercy, kindness and love so we can capitalize on what God creates.  We are the human garden growing in faith.

Join us on Sunday as we look at what we can learn from the parable in Mark chapter 4.  We begin worship at 10 am.  All are welcome either in-person or on-line.   The bulletin can be found on this website in the virtual bulletin tab. We look forward to seeing you!
