Preaching about money and giving and generosity just makes people uncomfortable. This weekend I thought I’d turn the tables; perhaps it should be my turn to be uncomfortable.
And nothing makes me more anxious than preaching without any notes.
So on Friday, I asked people to send me scripture passages about money that they found challenging, confusing, or obscure.
I wrote them down on a spinning wheel and then ll just shot from the hip and thought through the passages as we landed on them at random.
As I mentioned in one of the services, if we were to put every scripture passage that speaks about money onto a spinning wheel like the one above we’d need a wheel that was 233 times bigger than this one.
Each of the 4 sermons were different this weekend; unfortunately, I’ve only got the recording from the 9:45 service.
Here it is. You can also download it in iTunes under ‘Tamed Cynic.’
