(Epic One Eight series October 6-27)
Jesus often told stories of farming and agriculture. At the time, the people who heard these stories would have likely been working much closer to the earth than most of us do today, meaning agricultural metaphors were a perfect way to illustrate the messages Jesus was trying to teach. But in our world, where snow and pavement can keep us away from even touching the earth, these stories can also help to remind us who we are.
The ancient stories of Genesis tell that we were brought into being alongside everything else in creation. We are a part of creation and are connected to all things around us, and so if we care for creation, we care for ourselves and one another. Join us as we figure out how we can reconnect with the earth and our environment and see what happens when we remember that we are grounded.
