Current Sermon Series

We’ve all heard of the “Good Samaritan” or “Prodigal Son” or “Pearl of Great Price.” Drawn from the parables of Jesus, these expressions reflect stories which were taken from everyday life to elaborate more complex ideas such as the kingdom of God or God’s will for our lives. Parables are like modern day .Com websites. Just as each website presents a summary of the basic components and characteristics of the person/organization it represents, so Jesus’ parables present in snapshot fashion, images of God, humanity, and the Kingdom of God. Furthermore, just as the best websites are interactive, the parables of Jesus invite us to ponder, reflect, and act upon insights we gain from them. Beginning August 10, I will be preaching a sermon series called The Kingdom of God.Com. It is my hope that this series will help us to hear and act upon the insights we find in seven of the best known and most important parables of Jesus. Plan to join us as we browse the Kingdom of God.Com at Birmingham UMC!
