What is your most loathed weed or your most loathed manifestation of evil or your most loathed person? Evil and weedy messes make us very uncomfortable; and angry; and anxious and fearful. The presence of evil makes us so uncomfortable that our natural, knee-jerk reaction is to get rid of IT as soon as possible. But pulling weeds isn’t as easy as it might seem. It’s not often even clear where the real evil lies, is it? Is getting rid of the “weeds” (perceived problem) always the best solution?

parables: Kingdom stories

current sermon series

Through the end of July, we’re looking at the parables of Jesus; stories He told to help describe life in His Kingdom. Each parable paints a picture to help us not only understand what it means for Him to be our King, but what it looks like, feels like, and sounds like when He’s in charge. Each parable is meant to come alive in us. Each parable invites us to enter and live in His Kingdom – with Him as our King, Lord, Master.
