On Sunday, Josh started a new teaching series called “The Big Story,” during which we’re exploring some intuitions we have about the world and what they might tell us about the “big story” that the Bible tells about where we’ve been and where we’re headed. Josh kicked us off by reflecting on our intuition that, somewhere deep down, the world is (or was?) beautiful and that we have a responsibility to it: the first “act” of the story, Creation. This week, Matt tackles another intuition we may share: the world, though once beautiful, is profoundly broken. It’s the second “act” of the story. And we have to ask ourselves: Is the brokenness just “out there” or is it also “in here,” within our very selves?
