From Series: "True Stories that Didn't Happen"
"That's a true story that never happened." -Tim O'Brien (The Things They Carried) Have you ever read or watched a work of fiction that you know didn't happen and yet what it said about humanity, or the state of our world rang true anyway? Many of our "classics" are considered so for the truths they bring to light. Throughout his earthly teaching, Jesus used parables (short fictional stories) as a tool to illustrate the reality of the Kingdom of God. In this sermon mini-series, we will dive into a few of his parables and explore the eternal truths they contain.
