Think?

Tomorrow in the adult class I teach at MoSt Church, we'll take a close look at "The Parable of the Shrew Manager" (Luke 16:1-15). In preparation for this class I came across a candid, solid gold quote from Fred Craddock in his superb volume on Luke's Gospel in the Interpretation commentary series. Think about it. :-)
". . . it is difficult to speak of a 'shrewd saint.'" Of course, part of the problem lies in the anti-cerebral bias in the church and the uwillingness, if not inability, of many to conceive of thinking as a kingdom activity."
