Monday, December 8th

Hi all. We are on for another discussion at the Tap House on Monday. This week, it’s a scripture reinterpreted: The widow and the coins, or is it Jesus and systems of exploitation?

If you can, read this recent blog post at onfaith: http://www.faithstreet.com/onfaith/2014/09/30/jesus-good-money-bad-religion-widows-coins/34304

Then ponder these questions (or bring some of your own!):

1. What do you think about this (re)interpretation?
2. The author suggests running our churches on a leaner budget. Is that a good “solution”?
3. Do our faith institutions have critical flaws like the ones Jesus points our in this parable?

See you there. 5:30.
