How do we know what we know? What do we need to see . . . or hear to believe? We’ll be wrestling with these questions on Sunday, as we explore the story of the “Rich Man and Lazarus.” This story is a doozy with the bulk of it taking place in Hades. The rich man finds himself there after a life of stepping over the poor, suffering man at his gate. Not wanting his family to land in the same fiery predicament, the rich man requests that Lazarus (the poor man) be sent heaven to warn his brothers to choose a different path. Father Abraham replies, “If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.” Join us as we explore revelation (or how God reveals God’s self to humanity). How do we know God? Is it through story or scripture, through people, through nature? And when we know God, how do we respond?
- Focal Scripture: Luke 16:19-31
