Tumbling in the Sand

Who is this master?

The texts for Sunday, November 16, 2014 (23rd Sunday after Pentecost): Zephaniah 1:7, 12–18Psalm 90:1–8[9–11] 121 Thessalonians 5:1–11; and Matthew 25:14–30.

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.
