I am writing this following our services and sermons on Sunday during which we considered the teaching of Jesus encouraging us to use all that God has entrusted to us in his service. If you missed it then you can listen to this sermon here:
The broader context of the parable (Luke 19:11-27) summons us to consider how we use our abilities, talents and time to serve the Lord, but one specific application relates directly to our material possessions and money. Whilst there are many ways we can give to the Lord’s work, an important one is through our own local church. Our services on Sunday therefore also included a Finance Presentation to help us all understand how money is given and used within the Parish.
