Luke’s Point

I was puzzling on a story in Luke. In chapter 16 of his gospel, Luke recounts something Jesus told him and the disciples. The story seemed a little strange to me and I was struggling to grasp its meaning. I scratched my head, and then I wondered if maybe Luke...

Writing these blogs sometimes feels like a kick in the head! (And here you thought you’d be reading some nicey-nice Christian piece!) I know my turn at writing the blog is coming sometimes a month or more in advance, so I spend that entire time fretting about it! It’s not...
