Collective Podcast Sermons for threshold faith communities.

This Sunday we are beginning our summer coloring series, this year focusing on the parables by Jesus in the New Testament. However, we will start addressing this spectrum of imagery by looking at a parable from the Old Testament, the prophet Nathan’s message to King David. In this introduction, Ben and Ian will lead an early exploration into the mysterious nature of what a parable is and what a parable is not, and we will begin to uncover the necessity of our own engagement with these parables to give them meaning.

Last week we explored a story we'd never heard. This week we'll look at a passage it is nearly impossible to avoid. "The Lord is my shepherd..." You know the rest. Whether from a funeral or from listening to Gangsta's Paradise. This is part of the problem. We can become so familiar with a text and its supposed meaning that we lose the ability to encounter it in fresh ways. This week, we'll aim to do just that.
