JR. Forasteros - February 10, 2013

Make Time to Take Time

We buy into the myth of productivity, the story that says we are what we make. That we should always be 'on', always going, always working. But God tells us that to be fully human, to be everything we were created to be, we must rest. God calls us to Sabbath, to lay down the things we do so that we can be the people we were created to be.

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.
