Riddle Me This: Jesus's Parables of God's Reign #1
We're reading parables from Matthew 13 for five weeks, starting now. And everything about our worship -- the seating, the music, the table, the reflection time -- is like a parable, definitely unexpected and kind of absurd. We're trying to get in the headspace and heartspace to hear Jesus's words about God-Who-Cannot-Be-Apprehended.
This recording includes instructions from Erin F. about how to get ourselves into conversation groups after the sermon. We had a lot to talk about. Three questions:
1. How do you feel about the mission Jesus and Isaiah shared, to confuse the issue of God for their hearers?
2. On a spectrum from clarity to confusion, where do you feel most comfortable? What parts of your life are in your comfort zone? What parts of your life are outside your comfort zone?
3. Katie suggested that God is playing a game of Sardines with us. Are there other games you can think of that God likes to play?
