Month of August 2018
The Back to Church and Back to School sermon series for the month of August will be, The Gospel and Dr. Seuss. We will see the parallels between the most memorable stories of Dr. Seuss and lessons found in Scripture. This sermon series will explore these connections. Jesus himself said about the element of mystery in his parables, “There is nothing hidden, except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret, except to come to light.” Many of us have fond memories of reading Dr. Seuss’s books, but as we have grown older and read these books to children, we recognize important messages that we didn’t realize we were getting as children. Messages that we now recognize from another important book, the Bible. The power of Dr. Seuss’s books to stand the test of time has something to do with the rhymes and illustrations, and a lot to do with the Spirit communicated through them. Dr. Seuss has gone on record as saying, “I get away with preaching by disguising the message. There is no particular message in my books, unless it is one of eternal hope.” I am looking forward to seeing you and sharing this series with you. Come and bring a friend to church.
