The best teachers are the ones that make their subject come alive. Whichever way you look at it, Jesus made his subject come alive. He came to teach us about God and his kingdom and through his parables and through his life God comes alive to us.
This summer we are going to be looking at 6 of Jesus parables found in Matthew’s gospel. Parables are stories that invite us to come in and imagine that we are part of the story, they encourage us to put ourselves in the picture and see God’s kingdom from a different perspective. So this summer you are invited to ‘come in, pull up a chair and make yourself at home’, as we discover the wonder of Jesus storytelling.
