Jesus told his Kingdom of Heaven parables using images common to the culture in which he lived. For most of us, those images aren’t part of daily lives. Still, the parables carry truth.
In this activity series, we’re casting Jesus’s parables into a more current context. We’re not changing the parables at all. Instead, we’re grounding the parables scenes common to our lives.
This week, we’re standing in a supermarket. Who knows where we’ll be next week.
We’re posting these micro-stories and corresponding pictures twice a week until Father’s day.
We’re still enjoying sharing our reflections on these micro-stories in our Santé Community FaceBook group. You’re more than welcome to join us. You can find the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/SanteCommunity.
How we’re doing this…
- Each micro-story and parable is recorded in audio format and posted both here on the Santé website and in our FaceBook “Santé Community Group.” The recordings are super-short, under 2 minutes of audio. Each parable post also includes a picture. (you can find the first parable at the end of this post)
- Participants listen to the audio and consider the story. Some pray and reflect, noticing what God is saying to them personally through the parable, micro-story and picture.
- Those in our FaceBook community group might post their reflections on the story. We’re reading each other’s posts and finding our own experience and perceptions deepening.
- On FaceBook, we’re using the hashtag: #santekingdom2017 to help us find all the threads.
If you’re enjoying these micro-stories, please share this post with your friends. Maybe they’ll enjoy them, too.
