This One's a Doozy

Series: A Dysfunctional Family

June 09, 2024 | Rev. Carrie Binnie

Passage: Ephesians 5:21-6:4

“Wives submit to your husbands,” is a phrase from Ephesians that makes many of us bristle. If Jesus was all about inclusion and equalizing the playing field, what are we to make of these instructions attributed to Paul? Is there anything redeeming in them for our lives today?

Series Information

Is your family a bit dysfunctional at times? You’re not alone! Starting all the way back in the book of Genesis, we see family dynamics that carry forward dysfunctional traits across generations. Despite this reality, God still chose these people, our ancestors of the faith, to be God’s people. As we seek to learn from the ancient stories and apply our learnings to life today, we’ll discover a hope grounded in the unmerited grace of our Creator.
