Justice at the Gate – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 

Scripture: Luke 16:19-31

 

Jesus’ parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus is a well-known story about a rich man, a poor man, and their relationship during their life and after their death. It’s a striking story and one that raises a lot of questions. We’ll reflect on this story with an eye toward the gate that divided the rich man and Lazarus and ask: How does this gate focus our attention in this parable? Where are the gates in our own lives? How is Jesus inviting us to respond?
