Parables 2 - Oct. 14
Last week we talked a bit about what parables are. This week, I’m just going to share a few with you. Some I made up, others are ones Jesus said. As I share, I encourage you, pick your favourite. Which one do you identify with most? What’s God saying to you in these? Think on it. Share about it in small group. Parables: Made to Burn. The kingdom App. the Kingdom Video. The Kingdom Field. The Kingdom Pearl. - sometimes Jesus parables were intentionally vague, cause people weren’t interested in his story, they only wanted to look good.

Oct 7 - What’s a Parable?
Jesus used these short, made up stories a lot in his teaching. What are they? How do we read them? They explore 1 idea. The different characters have different responses to the idea. Where are you in the story? They’re short and memorable so we can think on them. Try to catch the gist. Don’t get hung up on details. God wants to talk to you. Take some time and chat with him about these two ideas, expressed via plants lol. These parables were from Matthew 13, if you want to re-read them (highly recommend, super short reading), or delisted to my reading. Sower & Seeds 4:28 Wheat & Weeds 5:16

Church Chats 5 - Worship
What do you love to talk about? What is Worship? Where do you go when you're stressed? Why do we worship? What does it do in us? Hebrews 12:1 B - "...let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us" John 14:1-7 - check it out. He's preparing a place for us - he is the path we walk. He is the life we live. John Wesley "As long as God has work for me, I am immortal." C.S. Lewis: If I find in myself desires that nothing in this world can satisfy, I can only conclude that I was not made for here. Rev. 3:17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. C.S. Lewis "When we consider the unblushing promises offered in the gospels from Christ it would seem that our Lord finds our desires not to strong but too weak. He says, “we are half hearted creatures falling about with drink, sex and ambition while infinite joy is being offered to us.” He says "we are like a peasant playing with a mudpie in a slum because we don't know what is meant by the offer to vacation at sea. And he ends with this great line, "We are far too easily pleased.
