This past weekend we concluded a four-week series at The Orchard entitled, “The Gospel: From a Garden to The City”.  This turned out to be a tremendous series that I think God used to impact our community in significant ways. 

Rather than being a series focused strictly on the doctrinal aspects of the gospel, our goal was to give sort of a 30,000 ft view of the overarching narrative of the gospel: Creation, Fall, Redemption, Restoration.  I appreciate Tim Keller's thoughts on the fact that while there is only
one gospel, there are clearly different forms in which the gospel
can be expressed. This series was just one of those expressions.

My hope and prayer going in to the series was that it would help accomplish three things in our community: expand our view of the gospel, find and embrace our place in the story, and of course…be led into a greater discovery of the beautiful hope we have in the Cross and Resurrection.  

The above logos are all original paintings that were beautifully created by our friend, Sherri Ohler.  Each weekend was represented by one of these paintings that each followed the narrative.

Here are a few photos from throughout the series.  (Also, special thanks to artists: Maureen Gasek, Julie Vogt, and Lisa Price.)

    This is wonderful! I work for a campus ministry organization called the CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach), and our model of sharing the gospel with students is exactly this.
    I wrote a post about living a full-gospel life a while back:
    It’s great to see your church addressing this. Thanks, Scott.
