Godspell: A Broadway Parable

When asked why he used parables to describe who God is and what the Kingdom of God is like, Jesus responded, “This is why I speak to them in parables: Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.”

Jesus’ stories still speak to us 2,000 years later. They help us understand not only God, but how we go about our daily life, whether it is seeking justice, giving and receiving forgiveness, how we steward our money, or the way we respond to who God is calling us to be.

Join us as we explore some of Jesus’ parables found in the Broadway musical Godspell and discern practical ways to grow deeper in our own Christian walk.
