This Sunday we are going to focus on a famous passage from Luke’s Gospel. The passage is about the Good Samaritan and it is found in Like 10:30-37. As we approach this text I want you to prepare yourself for hearing a fresh message from this famous parable. In fact I want you to intentionally set aside most of the information that you have gathered from this text and I want you to listen from a new perspective. We have all heard sermons from Luke 10:30-37 that promote social justice, kindness to the poor, and even an emphasis on racial reconciliation. Those are good reminders but honestly they fall short of the intended purpose behind this story.
Our Pastor writes most of the blog posts we publish, however, occasionally some of our other church leadership (some staff, some volunteer) who also contribute to the New Life blog.
