16/09/2012 Waterloo Road Methodist Church, Blackpool
Worship leader and Preacher: Stuart Furnival.
Scripture: Ps 113, Lk 16:1-13
Stuart began by looking at how often we have good intentions in serving God but find ourselves distracted and miss the opportunity and in doing so we ‘short change’ God. He spoke of how often our financial concerns override our choices and he went on to challenge the congregation to be more consistent especially in the light of Christ’s love and sacrifice for us.
For me the message is heard against a backdrop of attitudes I come across in the Church, it seems that to some churchy folk the financial viability of the Church as a building is more important than anything else. You have to wonder who their God is?
