Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!

Understanding

I found a jewel in a book on preaching: “One may become a Living Parable as one’s life becomes more and more conformed to the life of Jesus, so that one’s life both instructs and puzzles the wider society. Parabolic living and witnessing to the gospel give us the power to transform to lives.”*

Imagine a life where accidents and happenstance … coincidence and providence … where the odd and the unusual do not upset or disturb us but give rise to new ways of understanding … new ways of working in the world … new ways of doing God’s work in the world.

(*Paraphrased from The New Interpreter’s Handbook of Preaching, December, 2008)
