Lammack Methodist Church, one of our Blackburn Circuit churches, hosts a mid-week worship service every other week. Mid-week worship’s theme at the moment is parables. Yvonne, my superintendent and the minister at Lammack, asked if I would take one and I thought I would be daring and choose the Parable of the Dishonest Manager (Luke 16.1-13). I could have chosen any parable – lost sheep, good Samaritan, or even the mustard seed. No, I wanted a challenge and chose Luke’s weird parable about Jesus telling us to win friends by using dishonest wealth.
Mid-week worship is Thursday, so if anyone has any ideas on how to present it, I am listening.
