To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.


A crisis in personal finances calls forth great inventiveness from this manager. “I’ve got to be sure that I have a roof over my head when I’m fired!”

A glance at the whole line of the week’s readings in the quilt of this season reveals a temple theme threading its way through the days. Today Jesus contrasts the creativity of this man in caring for the temple of his earthly home with the lack of concern of so many for the spiritual, heavenly temple and the eternal “roof” intended to cover us.

Become quiet so that you will sense the contrasts of these priorities. Sift, evaluate, feel what is truly central in your life. Will you be as creative and inventive about the call upon your life, as you are with caring for yours and your family’s temporal needs?
