Luke 16:19-31

4th Sunday after Epiphany - Year A

January 29, 2017

The Rev. Dr. Camille Cook Murray (PCUSA)

I started talking to a mother whose daughter was about the same age as mine. Within a few minutes of talking to her, she started to complain to me about how stressful her life was right now. Stressful not because of work demands, toddler sleep issues, or health concerns. No, stress because she just had too many houses. Eight houses, to be exact!

Lillian Daniel: Comfortable in My Seat

The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel (UCC)

At a recent Interfaith Worker Justice board meeting, Naeem Baig, President of the Islamic Circle of North America, shared a story about a scene he witnessed on an airplane. A mother was traveling with three small children but for some reason, none of them were seated together. So the mother asked other passengers if they would move so she could stay close to her little ones.

The Rev. Anthony Robinson (UCC)

The Pharisee is almost a cartoon of the self-righteous person. It's easy to poke fun at him. Harder to identify with him.

Frederick Schmidt: 4 Ways to “Future” the Church

The Rev. Dr. Frederick Schmidt (TEC)

In a recent article on 'Futuring' in The Wall Street Journal, Christopher Mims observes: 'The art and science of futuring is fast becoming a necessary skill, where we read signals, see trends and ruthlessly test our own assumptions....

Greg Carey: Grace Inside the Church and Out

Dr. Greg Carey (UCC)

When I was in middle school, I committed an act of vandalism significant enough to elicit a police investigation. Three weeks passed before I was called into the principal’s office to meet the detectives. I thought I’d gotten away with it.
