Parables: Whispers of a New Reality

Reality can be bleak sometimes.  We’d rather not deal with a grave diagnosis, a prolonged period of unemployment, a failed marriage, an untimely death, or a wayward child.  Even day-to-day reality can be exhausting as we rush through our harried days, and our harried days blur together into monotonous months and years.  We hurry the kids to school.  We grind out the work day.  We come home to face a house full of chores.  And we do it over and over again.  Reality can be harsh and unforgiving.  But through all the noise we hear a whisper.  We hear the voice of Jesus.  When Jesus wanted to convey the greatest truths, he would tell a simple story – a parable.  And through his parables Jesus presents to us a new reality that far transcends the reality that we see.  Life in his kingdom is too magnificent for rote words.  It’s too wonderful to be presented by lecture.  If Jesus would have clearly and plainly stated all the glories of this new reality, then our yearning hearts would break.  So Jesus reveals his kingdom to us through parables.  He doesn't tell us what it is; he only tells us what it is like.

Join us all summer long as we unleash Jesus’ greatest teachings from The Parables: Whispers of a New Reality.
