Another Take on the Dishonest Manager

September 20, 2010

It is no secret, brothers and sisters, that yesterday’s Gospel passage was a difficult one to read, digest, preach upon, and teach to children.  I think all of us who read it, heard it, or otherwise engaged it yesterday scratched our heads a bit and wondered. You heard me wrestle with it from the pulpit and in the end, at best, take it on with a glancing blow.

Today, I listened online to a sermon from a former colleague of mine who preached upon this text.  In her sermon, the Rev. Deacon Mary Alice López explains this parable in a way that is full of grace, love, integrity, majesty, and forgiveness.  It is the kind of sermon that I wish I could write sometimes and I commend it to your hearing.

    Bless me Father for I have sinned. I was fishing while you were preaching. But Julie said you rocked!

    Bumper Sticker I Once Saw:

    “It is better to go fishing and think about God than to go to Church and think about fishing.”
