This Week at BayMarin, October 7, 2018

Dear BayMarin,

This Sunday we will look at a story Jesus told in Matthew 20:1-16 about a vineyard owner who hired workers all throughout the day and then paid them all the same amount at the end the day. If you have some space, spend time with this story before we explore it together on Sunday. It's sure to have us all thinking about ideas of fairness and God's unpopular economy of grace. Hope to see you Sunday!


3 Years with Jesus: Stories Jesus Told

As we jump into our second year of 3 Years with Jesus, our first mini-series will look at some of the stories Jesus shared. Jesus understood that stories spoke to the heart and Jesus often spoke in parables to share the way of God ' s kingdom in our midst. Join us as we explore some of these stories together. You can view the schedule for 3 Years with Jesus here.
