Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Sunday service

The scripture for today is a difficult section of Luke 16 where Jesus tells a parable of a rich man about to fire his manager who has been squandering his property.  The parable’s “solution” seems to be odd and difficult to interpret because the rich man ends up judging the manager to have acted “shrewdly” and the parable clearly praises that shrewdness.  Maybe in this case Jesus is saying that to use one’s wealth to benefit others is a way to benefit the kingdom.  It is a complex parable, and Carol Cavin-Dillon confesses that it is, but she deals with it in her sermon.   (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
