Witness

The word and practice of witness are often misused in the church. This Sunday I will try to offer a more biblical and authentically challenging account.

We think about money…a lot.

If you look closely at the biographies of Jesus in the bible you’ll notice that Jesus talks about or directly interact with issues of finances more than he directly speaks about several traditional elements we associate with Christian thought.  He speaks about money more than eternal destiny, more than the church, more than several aspects of morality.  Jesus knew something about the people he interacted with in the first century—they thought about money…a lot.  The same is obviously true for us today.  We think...
