  • Flesh And Spirit And Cleverness For The Gospel

  • Who Do You Serve?

    Contributed by Colin Thornby on Nov 6, 2010
    based on 3 ratings

    Making a choice to serve Jesus (Luke 16:1-13)

    This is one of the more difficult passages of Luke’s Gospel, and the interpretation of it divides commentators and preachers. What are we to make of it? I think the key to it is, once again, to look at it in the context of the central theme of Luke’s Gospel – what does it mean more

    I’ve had some experience in signing contracts with various musicians over the years to do concerts in the church. Those contracts spell out the details of what each party expects, and they contain few, if any, surprises. That’s not the case with some of the big-name entertainers. For example, Van more

    8th Sunday After Pentecost 2018 Extraordinary Form Today we come face to face with what we might title Divine Economics 101. It owes nothing to Adam Smith, or Friedrich Hayek or even G.K. Chesterton. It requires a special care in reading because the Gospel might convince us that Jesus is more

    Bale 23-09-01 Single-mindedness This morning’s Gospel reading is the Parable of the Unjust Steward: Luke 16:1-13 This is one of the most difficult parables to understand - because at first blush it looks as if Jesus is condoning sharp practices. On careful reflection however, I don’t more
