As we continue in our Lenten sermon series we come across... a traditional 3 point sermon! So let's break down this part of Jesus' prayer: give us today our daily bread.
“It’s not that we don’t like to talk about money. We love to talk about other people’s money! It’s that we don’t like to talk about OUR money”
Luke 12, Luke 16
This was the one sermon that I desperately didn’t want to preach.
Because seriously… it’s weird to talk about money.
But Jesus was never afraid to talk about money. In fact Jesus knew that where our money is, our heart would be. And so we have to talk about money, because we need to talk about the heart.
So what is giving, and why is it an important part of our liturgy?
Also, I lost my notes this week… and so that was interesting… I must have REALLY NOT wanted to preach on money.

2 Corinthians 8, 1 Corinthians 11
The call of God’s people has always been to show the world what He is like; and this means being radically generous with our lives, and yes, even with our money.
