We continue with our
"Did You Hear the One About..." sermon series this Sunday with, "Did You Hear the One About the Dishonest Manager?" Read the scripture passage here: Luke 16:1-9.
Jim will be preaching at both our traditional service at 9:00 a.m. and our progressive service at 10:15 a.m. We are in for a treat at the earlier service, as Minji Will gifts us with a solo. We enjoyed getting to know our new One and All Band vocalist, Mitchell, last Sunday. Didn't get a chance to hear him sing and play? Come to One and All! It's the 10:15 service in Fellowship Hall, and the experience includes unique prayer stations and a light breakfast. See you there!
About the topic, Jim says, "This is a difficult parable to understand because it seems to praise the manager's dishonesty. The parable is better understood as praising the rich man's trust of his manager. How willing are we to trust someone else?"

"Did You Hear the One About ... the Dishonest Manager?"
This is a difficult parable to understand because it seems to praise the manager's dishonesty. The parable is better understood as praising the rich man's trust of his manager. How willing are we to trust someone else?
