Apologies for the fuzzy mic sound– the settings on our microphone were messed up and we didn’t catch it until later! We appreciate your patience. :)

Welcome back to Between Two Pews! This is our penultimate episode for this season; next week, we finish off our first season with guest Rev. Damon Lynch II. Today, Stephen and Sarah– sans a guest due to busy schedules!– talk about metaphors and parables, mixed connotations with masters and slaves, and why Vacation Bible School being so corny is what makes it so fun. If you like what we’re doing with Between Two Pews, consider subscribing to us on YouTube or dropping a review of the podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify. Sharing with your friends is also neat!

“Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

“Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. If he comes during the middle of the night or near dawn and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.

“But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Luke 12:32-40
