You Made it Weird

“That was awkward...”

We’ve all had awkward moments.  Like when you go in for a hug but the other person only wants a handshake.  Or when you hold the door open for someone too far away and force them to run over.  Certainly you’ve done that little dance when you and the person trying to walk past you sidestep one another in the same direction.  Awkwardness is a regular part of life.  Maybe that’s why Jesus used it so often to make his point.   If you read through the Gospels carefully, you’ll find that sometimes Jesus was just...well...embarrassing.  He was wonderful, people loved him, and he loved everyone.  But sometimes he made people really, really uncomfortable.  As a matter of fact, he seemed to relish in it.   Jesus may be a lot of things, but he’s not boring, and we can learn a lot from these weird encounters that he had with people.  So join us Sundays this summer at 10 AM for our brand new summer series entitled You Made it Weird: Those Awkward Moments with Jesus.
