Continuing our exploration of the community statement

This parable is offered to the self-righteous who look down on others - certainly none of us can relate. This Sunday we wrap up our summer of parables with a really fun reading with some fascinating twists. It invites some significant personal and social reflection, and has us considering the deceptions and illusions with which we unknowingly live.

This week we'll be weaving together a number of threads, including a couple of baptisms, and an exciting report from a couple Collective folks about a recent summer theological institute. We'll make these connections through the parable of the pearl, Harry Potter, and a ship of fools. We'll ask some important questions about how faith is so often understood as a fixed commodity, a point of arrival, when faith is so often experienced as a meandering, lived in process.

This Sunday we continue our engagement with parables, coloring them with our own experience. In addition to coloring sheets in the service, we’ll hear from the voice of the kids from their first reading. This week we’ll lean into the mysterious nature of parables, and the way they offer a sort of revelation through concealment. If you come looking for answers, they leave you with more questions, if you come desiring satisfaction, they seem only to further kindle your desire.
