Aboriginal Christian Leader Brooke Prentis shares a powerful reflection this Lent, inviting us to see our neighbour who is hurting and who does not feel loved.
Throughout the gospels, Jesus teaches his disciples through stories – everyday realities that contain a subversive message: that the kingdom of God turns everything upside down; that those the world calls least are the greatest.
This Lent, Common Grace and Bible Society Australia invite us to rediscover Jesus's profound teachings veiled in everyday stories. As we come together, we're praying for ears to hear these teachings of Jesus afresh, to let them get past our defences and under our skin, as they transform us to make things right in this world.
We've invited prominent teachers from across Christian traditions to walk with us through some of Jesus' central parables, and the relevancy of their subversive call to us two-thousand years on. Every Wednesday during Lent we'll have a new video on one of the Parables, along with bible readings and some spiritual practises that may help you explore each story more deeply.
This series has been produced in partnership with Common Grace and Bible Society Australia. You can also find the video series on Eternity. Through this series we hope you are inspired, moved, convicted and confronted as we explore how Jesus calls us to beauty, generosity and justice in today’s world.
Dr Kate Harrison Brennan launches our Lent series exploring the Parables of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin that demonstrate God's relentless pursuit of each of His children. This video is part of Common Grace's 2019 Lent Series exploring the Parables of Jesus and their subversive nature that call us to seek justice, with mercy and humility.
