“Take This Personally”
(Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler) Jesus wants us to take His Word seriously, not as a personal attack but as a word of warning—and promise. (Luke 16:19-31)
(Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler) What does the cunning of a corrupt and incompetent accountant teach us about the undeserved mercy of God? Hear Jesus’ Parable of the Shrewd Manager, this week on The Lutheran Hour. (Luke 16:0).
Enjoy listening to the Lutheran Hour Sundays on WCCO 830AM at 6:05am, KDOM 1580AM 10:00am or KDOM 94.3FM at 10:00am.
