Title: “MOSAIC: Blessed Are Your Eyes – looking at the world through the eyes of a story teller.”

Text:  Matthew 13

IN A NUTSHELL   Jesus used stories to explain to those that would listen to some of the key truths about a Kingdom view of this world.  There is evil, there are opinions about the value of these stories, but we all have free-will to establish personal opinions about those stories.
