Welcome to the Peapack Reformed Church!
...small congregation ...inclusive embrace
welcoming all who seek to know, to love and to follow Jesus Christ.
Peapack Reformed Church is a congregation called by God, inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit and committed to being the very presence of Jesus Christ in the world.
Jesus spoke about the perils of striving after possessions and the spiritual danger of accumulating riches more often than anything else. No subject is of more concern to him in the Gospel of Luke than the issues of poverty and wealth, taken both literally and metaphorically. The parable that we will read today, however, seems to take an odd turn. It seems that Jesus finds something commendable in the manager who acts dishonestly with respect to someone else’s money. Scholars and preachers have been confounded by this parable for centuries, and they still reinterpret, argue and debate about it.
