The Magical Power of Myth

5-Week Sunday Lesson Series - 8:45 AM and 10:30 AM Services

Zoom link for the 10:30 AM Service:

The word “myth” is from the Ancient Greek for “word,” “tale,” or “story.” Myths refer to “root” stories or sacred narratives. In this series we will be exploring the magical power of myth, why we need it, how it impacts us personally and collectively, and how it can make a difference in our lives and our world. Becoming aware of the myths and stories we believe and continue to speak aloud is one important magical remedy to transform our lives. Myth is a way of making sense in a senseless world—our way of finding meaning and significance.

October 10: Week 1 - The Need for Myth
We need myth to 1) understand the world, 2) find our path through the world, 3) find relationships and community, and 4) understand our place in the greater universe.

October 17: Week 2 - Archetypes, Symbols & Heroes
Carl Jung said, “Myth is the revelation of a Divine life in us. It is not we who invent myth; rather, it speaks to us as a word of God.” A Bible story may or may not have happened, but it conveys truth. So, if an archetype, image or symbol is important to us, then it is real.

October 24: Week 3 - A Magical Life
We all have the possibility of a magical life when we embrace 1) imagination, 2) wonder, and 3) miracles. We discover that our life stories are part of a greater story.

October 31: Week 4 - Personal Mythology
There are some essential questions we can ask ourselves: What myths am I living? What myths did I grow up with as a child? What are my emerging myths? We may discover the theme or core myth that is central and basic to the way our individual life is lived.

November 7: Week 5 - Creating a New Story
Transformative change is threefold:  It comes from 1) a state of being, 2) a positive story or myth, and 3) taking loving action to help. The urgency of this time calls for a revolution of consciousness. Revolutionary times demand revolutionary thinking.
