What About the Weird Stories?

Worship Series June 2 - August 25, 2019

What About the Weird Stories?

Why did people write this down? Why did they feel the need to put words to this? Why did Ancient Israel and those among the Early Christian movement tell these stories—why did they tell them in this way? And why did these Scriptures endure? We're talking about the weird stories in the Bible, the ones you can’t make sense of, the ones you read and say to yourself: "I just don’t get it." In this series we’ll explore some of the weird stories and see what they have to say to us in our world today— to see what they teach us about God and hope and love and community and loss and forgiveness and faith and compassion. We'll explore how these stories help us better understand our stories.
