C36: The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (2016)

Rachel May

“What If Everyone Did That?” is a children’s book that Rev. Rachel May uses for her children’s time on the parable of the Rich Fool from Luke 12:13-21. You might wonder how this relates to today’s passage. Jesus warns people to guard themselves from all greed, “an equal opportunity infector,” according to May. Instead of discerning what more the foolish man could put into God’s hands, he thought, “I should build a bigger barn.” What about us? Are we proportional givers or do we hoard it up for ourselves? What could our world look like if we were all proportional givers? Listen as May explains how we can experience joy through giving more. What could the world be like if everyone did that?
