‘The Parable of the Cell Phone’ comes to Kelseyville Methodist Church March 4

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – Rev. Shannon Kimbell-Auth will preach on “The Parable of the Cell Phone” at Kelseyville United Methodist Church on Sunday, March 4.

What? You have never heard of the “Parable of the Cell Phone?” It may be obscure, or possibly, it may be made up.

Either way, the real life relevance within this parable startles with its synchronicity to the teachings of Jesus, the lament of Paul and the experience of the Israelites as they wandered in the wilderness.

The elements of the parable include a traumatic experience, a wise teacher, a refusal to choose, and finally… death.

Christians do not believe death is the end of the story, but we do believe in free will and sometimes, we willfully choose death over life.

Why is it that choosing life can be so difficult in the midst of mundane and difficult circumstances alike? Isn’t choosing life easier?

To hear the complete “Parable of the Cell Phone” and how it just might change your story for life,

The sermon begins at 9 a.m.

The focal texts for the message are Mark 1:15, Deuteronomy 30:15-20 and Romans 12:2.

Kelseyville United Methodist Church is located at 3810 Main St.
