Passage: Luke 16:1-13
In this sermon, Pr. Neal talks about his experience in the BWCA. On some portages, you have to go through mud that is sometimes ankle or knee deep. You can't go around it. In the in parable of the dishonest servant, the manager of the owner's land has to confront his failings. Out of his contracts, he gets only 50%, and 80% returns. But by confronting his issues, by going through the mud, the owner commends the manager for being "shrewd" about his business. In the same way, God commends us for confronting our own failings, and offers us grace on the other side.
Woodlake's vision statement is "Becoming a Gathering Place for All God's Children." In this series we explore how "place" matters in the life of faith.
