The Gospels for this Lent are some of Jesus’ best-known stories and parables. Sunday by Sunday encourages you to see these old stories afresh. One way to see anew is to re-title the story. Try it out.
- On Sunday, March 24, we heard the story of the barren fig tree whose owner wanted to cut it down. What if instead we called that gospel passage the story of the optimistic gardener?
- Last Sunday we had the parable of the prodigal son. What if we named it the parable of the forgiving father or the story of a family who forgives and needs forgiveness?
This Sunday tells about the Women Taken in Adultery. We have printed it here and left the title space blank. What other titles for this story can you offer? Let us know by responding to this post or emailing Sister Joan directly at email@example.com.
Blessings on your week as we head into Palm Sunday and Holy Week.
