Ugly Ducklings

Genesis 1 teaches us that God created us in God's image. While other creation stories written around the same time teach that humans were created to be slaves to the gods, Genesis teaches us that we are God's children and partners in creation. Today we are constantly surrounded by stories, by companies and cultures telling us what to be and how to act. We must always listen to Jesus, who perfectly reveals God's way to us and reminds us that we are first and foremost friends and children of God.

The Scriptures are full of symbols, metaphors and ideas that don’t make a lot of sense to our modern ears. From the evil of the oceans and living water to temples and gods, much of the language we find in the Scriptures points to a worldview very different from 21st century America. In this class, we’ll explore these ideas, examine where they influence the Scriptures. We’ll also find those same ideas in popular culture today, everywhere from books and movies to philosophy and politics. We’ll discover that the Scriptures truly are good news for all peoples in all times.

We’ll learn a bigger picture of Jesus’ good news that helps us to engage our contemporary culture with love, grace and truth.
