An Extravagant Giver
July 28th, 2019
The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 11, in which Jesus teaches the disciples about prayer. What kind of listener is God? What kind of gift-giver? The Good News is that God is not like us: we give reluctantly; God gives overflowingly. We give after being hounded; God gives immediately. We give to people we think deserve it; God gives to the undeserving. We give when there's something in it for us; God gives everything--the life of his beloved son.
