Link to the audio file of the sermon: Sermon on the Master and three slaves
**Most of the sermon was preached without manuscript. In this sermon, I compare Mary’s Magnificat and the God that she describes there with the master in this parable, challenging our assumption that the master in this parable is God … maybe, instead, he is us. Louis CK gets a mention, too.
