“In this wise, entertaining, and educational book, Amy-Jill Levine offers a fresh, timely reinterpretation of Jesus’ narratives. In Short Stories by Jesus , she analyzes these “problems with parables,” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. Levine reveals the parables’ connections to first-century economic and agricultural life, social customs and morality, Jewish scriptures and Roman culture. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.” ~from Amazon

Prayer Focus – September 10, 2019
Praying together keeps us strong, united, and focused on God’s leading for us!
This week’s focus: God’s Grace
Have you ever had a week where you felt everything went wrong, when you felt you were just “wrong”?? Oftentimes, in those situations we’re hard on ourselves, aren’t we? We’re kind and compassionate with others we encounter, and we lovingly remind them of God’s grace, meant for them…meant for us all… What about you…and me…aren’t we included in the “all”? Of course, we are!! Yet sometimes we need a reminder to extend that same grace to ourselves that God does. Consider this that reminder!
