Luke 16:1-15

What to do when you’re faced with a passage of Scripture you don’t understand. Also what to do (and what not to do) if and when you’re faced with a loss of power and resources when you had them before.

Central Baptist Church is embarking on a capital campaign to restore key aspects of our historic 1860’s era building. This is partly for the historic value, but even more so we can more faithfully serve the community where God has placed us, using the resources God has given us. If you would like to participate in this good work, please visit our website, cbcsouthbridge.org, and designate your gift to “Ezra’s Purse.” Thank you.

19 June 2022 – Father’s Day/Juneteenth

Luke 15:11-32

The Prodigal Son parable takes the parables of the lost sheep and the lost coin a step further. But also, we miss some important details when we focus on the son who ran away. Like, what about the son who stayed? And who’s the real prodigal in all this?

Luke 14:7-24

Ever think about how except for that one time, Jesus must’ve been really awkward at parties?

To guests: Sit somewhere else.

To hosts: Stop inviting your rich friends.

Someone tries to redirect Him with talk about the Feast in the Kingdom. Jesus: Yeah, about that…

29 May 2022 – Memorial weekend

Luke 18:1-14

A stubborn widow hassles a corrupt judge for justice, an arrogant religious person tells God how awesome he himself is, and an immoral, unjust tax collector gets humble before God. Somehow all of this is connected to the Good News…and the crazy things that have been happening in the world lately.

1 May 2022

Luke 10:25-37

Pastor Jenn was sick this weekend. So Barb preached two Messages from her Basket, and Pastor Jenn recorded her sermon from home. This communion Sunday recording is therefore longer than usual, but such good stuff–we hope you’ll listen to all of it!

Today we looked, with Jesus, at the questions, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” and “Who’s my neighbor?” (Turns out they’re related.) We discover that parables work because we’re usually all the characters, one way or another. And also, Jesus Himself is hiding somewhere in them, too.
