Sept. 29 Gathering: The Shrewd Manager


Guest host: Kevin Malcomb

In the middle of the gospel of Luke, we find what seems to be a bizarre story about a business manager who gets fired and then cheats his boss by reducing the debts of those who owe him money. And rather than get angry, the man’s master commends him for his shrewdness.

It’s one of the more confusing passages in scripture. Is Jesus saying that we should cheat and lie and befriend those who do likewise in order to gain favor? Or is something else going on at a deeper level?

This Sunday at New Wineskins, guest host Kevin Malcomb will walk us through a conversation about the Parable of the Shrewd Manager (Luke 16:1-13) and we’ll explore what Jesus might really be trying to say by looking at the bigger picture Luke is trying to paint.

Join us this Sunday, Sept. 29, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company to join in the conversation!

Happy half-hour at 6:30pm, conversation starts at 7:00pm
