Pair of bells

arriThe five video clips below consist of Uncle Gottfried asking me questions about Jesus’ parables. For those who haven’t met Uncle Gottfried, he’s a regular around Rainbow. In German the name Gottfried means man of peace or God’s peace. Like all characters who strive for true peace, Uncle Gottfried asks a lot of questions, and as a result he sometimes becomes the instigator or agitator. He does this while remaining curious, playful, loving, and oh-s0-witty.  You can see Uncle Gottfried interacting with the WorshipArts group at Rainbow by clicking here and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

Introduction to parables:

Parable of the Talents

Parable of the Leaven

Like a good neighbor!

Lost son(s)

Special thanks to Jesse Graber and Mike Horner for their creative help on this project.

Mike Horner and his great Onkel Gottfried in eastern Germany. As Mike says, "Gottfried is almost 89 but still rides his bike on the cobblestone streets of his village, Gottesgnaden, to get to his garden and tend to his rabbits. My Oma, Gottfried's older sister, was a bit taller than he is, but not by much."
