It’s Not All Up to Us, June 28 – Confrontation & Troublemaking: Gospel Perspectives, part 4 (online)

Bernadette Rudolph

June 28, 2022

The endlessness of suffering wearies us to the core.  Relentlessly standing up to the power of injustice can lead to despair or violence.  Overwhelmingly, the Gospels declare that we have an awesome ally in God, whether or not we acknowledge it.  Where is God in all this mess?

Confrontation and Troublemaking: Gospel Perspectives – a four-part series

Disagreements are inevitable; how we handle them is where we have options.  Injustices demand that we speak up, but how?  Our polarized society pushes us toward fighting, demonizing one another and cancelling people.  Emotionally, we may find ourselves both grieving and furious.  How can we heal and move in a life-giving direction?

The gospels lay out just such an option.  After all, Jesus was born into conflict – in a country ruled by another – and got into trouble with almost everyone.  His actions and teachings state clearly how to confront evil and bring peace.  Yet, the message is complex and living it is challenging.

This series will examine key stories, teachings and themes of Jesus, as well as the messages the gospel writers intended for their historical audiences.  We will have time for reflection and rich conversations, exploring how these stories can guide us through confrontation and troublemaking today.

Each session stands independent of the others, so feel free to join in as many as you can.
