Lost in Translation: April 30 at 10am

There are lots of ways we are lost in translation these days. More and more people identify as “none”, having no religious affiliation. Fewer and fewer people are familiar with the stories of scripture or the language of faith. We preach power through vulnerability, and wisdom through foolishness. We preach the first will be last and the last will be first. We follow a man who refused to become an earthly king and was skeptical of the flattery of the crowd. Our God cares for the poor, the hungry, the widowed, the imprisoned because there is awareness that the rich, the well fed, and the free, will and do care for themselves. How are we going to work on our translation for a world that could use a good word from God?
