Show Notes Chapter Markers
In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 20 (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 16:1-13; 1 Timothy 2:1-7; Psalm 79:1-9; Jeremiah 8:18-9:1.

We discuss the surrounding context of Jesus' teaching of the shrewd steward as well as His wise words about the love of money, take a brief look at Paul's "first of all" charge to Timothy,  and meditate on the lament of the Asaph the psalmist and Jeremiah the prophet.

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
