A Homily for the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

All Saints, Cochrane

Teach us to discern your hand in all your works and to serve you with reverence and thanksgiving; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the [wealth] of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

Amen.
