Cruciformity: Entering God's Story

The Meeting House, a large church outside of Toronto that calls themselves "a church for people who aren't into church," is going through a series on how to enter Scripture as God's story.The first week outlines the story of God in six acts (MP3 audio | PDF sermon notes).The second week is on basic hermeneutics (MP3 audio | PDF sermon notes). It includes a section on three exegetical mistakes that lead to anthropocentric interpretation: over moralizing (turning narrative into moral example without regard for context), over symbolizing (turning history into allegory), and over personalizing (making everything about ME first, Jesus second).Next week's sermon is on Christocentric interpretation.This series is a good example of teaching basic Biblical interpretation to an entire congregation.
