Trinity 9 – Luke 16:1-9

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Lots of help on this one from different places. I took a different tack with this text courtesy of Robert Farar Capon. It’s a way of preaching this text, one of many angles. I tried to weave in a more traditional way to look at this parable as well. I leave it to the Holy […]

Nehemiah orders those working in Jerusalem to keep one hand on their sword and the other hand busy working. Gerhard continues: You see, this is a perfect […]
