This week we'll experience a sort of sampler of sermons on this well worn parable. Often called "The Good Samaritan", this story offers several levels for engagement and interpretation. Ultimately, we want to peel back each layer, get a bit deeper, and attempt to reveal the deepest goodness this story holds. In a world rocked by suffering and fear, this week presents a unique opportunity to receive some truly GOOD news.

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.

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.

Four times in the Scroll of Esther, Queen Esther is asked what she desires. Three times she is promised power and riches. Esther's answers not only move the story along, but are revealing of the wishes of all women - to live peaceful, fearless lives where justice prevails.

Following Ben's trip to the WAKE festival in Ireland with Pete Rollins, he'll be hosting a few sessions to share his experience and insights from the content, as well as process out-loud in real time with anyone interested in delving deeper into the theory and practice of Radical Theology.

This week we'll explore the cry for justice. We'll join the Psalmist in lamenting the reality that justice does not exist... even as we celebrate the fact that we know what justice is. Even without existence, we know the unconditional call of justice in our gut and in our bones. So, how can it not be a thing, and yet so powerfully move us and shape us?
