Some of the Latest News of our Parish
seeing your life through the lens of the gospels
1 As often with the parables of Jesus, this one is intended to shock in order to make us think. Jesus is not praising the injustice of the servant, but his purposefulness in preparing for the future. In your experience what difference does it make when you are purposeful and energetic instead of lethargic?
2 It was his master’s call to account that galvanised the servant into action. What have been the experiences, or people, that have galvanised you into action when you had been somewhat half-hearted in your efforts?
3 ‘No servant can be the slave of two masters.’ When have you experienced the truth of this statement?
