SUPER HEROES: ORDINARY GIFTS, EXTRAORDINARY CALLING

 

Comic book superheroes embody the hopes of a world that is desperate for a savior. They fall short of fulfilling those hopes. However, they still are attractive, in part because they draw on fundamental elements of the gospel story. Join us as we look at four popular superheroes, and see how each of their individual callings helps us understand a key scriptural theme in a way that is particularly relevant to Christians today.
