If it's OK for Jesus to grow into being himself--maturing, learning, asking questions and figuring out his identity--then it's OK to grow into our own skin, too.  Sometimes church folk forget that, and we assume that a fully-grown, all-wise adult Jesus beamed down from heaven, a la Star Trek, without having come through the learning and growth of childhood and adolescence.  But as Luke the Gospel writer tells us, Jesus' own full humanity meant growing up--not just in size or stature, but in his understanding of who he was.  And for us, too, then, Jesus' humanity becomes permission for us to remember that we are learning, growing, deepening, and maturing humans, too.  Jesus not only shows us what God is like, but embodies how to be human as well.  In this conversation, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve explore the stories Luke gives us from Jesus' childhood and what they mean for our own lives.  Check it out here on Crazy Faith Talk!
