Sunday 22nd September – 25C

LUKE 16:1-13
The shrewd manager
made safe his future by means

Misconduct was alleged
and the rogue manager,
perhaps deferred a present gain
by creative accounting
to sometime hence
and, most likely,
with interest accrued.

The Teacher’s parable
reflected his own position:
a rogue agent,
seemingly unauthorised,
dispensing forgiveness
and commending the shrewd.
