Our Current Sermon Series
You doubt. You believe. What happens when you doubt your doubts?
The great Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor tells us that in our modern age, it is no longer possible for us to believe and not doubt, and it's no longer possible to doubt and not believe. We live in a secular age, and our doubts are 'haunted' by a deep suspicion that the stories we tell ourselves about reality are too small. They are haunted by a deeper sense that the story of our lives is a much bigger, much greater story than we dare to believe.
Jesus understands this. Although he first lived and taught in a pre-modern age, the stories he told were meant to blow up the petty stories of any age. He wants to unsettle our unbelief and draw us into a bigger story, the great story. And this is the story the that moves us—together with our doubt and our belief—into a genuine hope we can live and share.
In this series we look at five parables that challenge five defining dogmas of our culture. Is it possible that we will only find resolution to the stories of our lives when we find it in Jesus? He doesn't just challenge us with his parables; he haunts us with his resurrection life!
