The Right Thing at the Right Time  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 19–31
Summary: Saying and even doing things that themselves are right can be a way to evade the responsibility of saying and doing the right thing about the situation you’re faced with. Jesus’ parable of the rich man and Lazarus is primarily a warning to those like the rich man, but its conclusion in the afterlife is a reminder that final condemnation and salvation are both in the hands of a loving God.

Serving God in a World of Wealth  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 1–13

Wired for More Than Games  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 1–13
Summary: Jesus praised the dishonest manager, not for his dishonesty, but for the focus and energy he applied. God calls us to put as much energy into our relationship with him. He has already given us the right gifts, but it’s up to us to decide how to use them. The world will be a better place when we use our gifts as God wants us to.

Use What You Have to Do What You Can  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 19–31
Summary: The parable of the rich man and Lazarus speaks strongly to us who have plenty. The sin of the rich man was not that he did not solve all Lazarus’ problems, but that he did nothing at all. Likewise, we cannot solve poverty. But we can do something, and for the good of our souls, we must.

Upstairs, Downstairs  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 19–31

The Most Clueless Man in History and His Brothers  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 19–31
Summary: This parable is exactly that: a parable; it is not live video footage of what happens to us after we die. This, however, does not let us off the hook. The parable’s teaching is clear: Hardness of heart in the face of relievable human misery utterly and completely separates us from God and from the kingdom of heaven.

Prudence, and the Children of the Light  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 1–13
Summary: Everything from the earth itself to the bodies in which we live is on loan to us from God. We are not the owners of such things, but the managers. As such we are responsible both as individuals and as a society to care for whatever we have been given. We are children of the light, but sometimes we need to apply that light with more prudence.

Projected Winner  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 1–13
Summary: Life isn’t over until it’s over. We know that in our modern process of predicting the outcome of elections and projecting a winner, there is a margin of error. In life, that margin of error in predicting our eternity is the cross of Calvary. The dishonest servant used his small window of opportunity to work toward securing his future.

Are We Human Yet?  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 16: 19–31
Summary: Jesus’ parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus tells us how to treat other people (and not about details of the afterlife). In doing so, it gets at the question of what it means to be human. Beyond philosophical or scientific definitions of humanity, we are called to be a community of mutual support and care. The most fundamental reason for this is the Incarnation of the Son of God.
