Sermon: Family Ties

x familytree clipart“Family Ties”

(January 20, 2013) Jesus engages his family and his community in ways that challenge our conceptions of these groups, identifying family not as a group of people related by blood and marriage, but as a community united by love, support, and shared values. Where have you felt part of a family– your nuclear one, or the larger universal human family? (John 2:1-11)
