By exploring Luke 8:40ff and the reality that the woman who touched Jesus’ edge of his cloak fully believed that he was the Messiah, Michele will explain the prayer shawl fringe and explore a salvation that is not just pie in the sky nor just doing justice in the world and working for peace. Because she believes that he can not only save her soul or only heal her body but the whole package: social, physical, spiritual, etc.
Michele will help us realize the importance of understanding the biblical Jesus in order to curb the temptation to shape Jesus into our own cultural identity. She will explore the Ceasarea Phillip story in Matthew 16 and share part of her own faith journey. The twist of Matthew 16 is that Jesus believes in Simon and the others, motley crew that they were.

Many young adults feel torn between two options: a) preserve the traditional approaches to Christian faith which are available to them, or b) reject any active practice of the faith altogether. There is a third option: c) to explore and discover new ways of living and practicing the way of Jesus. In today’s chapel, Brian McLaren will explore the strengths and weaknesses of all three options, and encourage students who feel so called to choose the third less-traveled road.
