Bigger Barns

Hi Everyone,

This Friday, November 1, we will take a look at the challenging text of Luke 12:15-21, a story told by Jesus that I would paraphrase “bigger barns.”  We are rich.  We are all rich, whether we think society sees us that way or not. We will be spending some time on the phenomenon of hoarding, but the focus of our lesson will be on understanding the faithful perspective of God caring for us instead of trying to take care of all things ourselves.

Coming attractions:

Grace and peace,

Denise
