Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Lazarus And The Rich Man

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Lazarus And The Rich Man

September 12, 2019

We return to Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the 1930’s of Germany. He was a man who would die young as he continued to return to Nazi occupied Germany despite the threats to his own life. He wanted to help the church, and when he got removed from the pulpit he would help build underground church movements in Germany. He was a staunch supporter of the Jewish cause and rabidly anti-Hitler.

In the sermon, “Lazarus and the Rich Man,” we get to hear his thoughts on the story in Luke 16 of what happens to the rich man and Lazarus. Bonhoeffer challenges us not to look past the real message of the text and try to make it say something it doesn’t. He also warns us that the same fate awaited the rich man and Lazarus, and awaits us as well.

This episode's sermon was preached by Dustin Garret, a representative of Samaritan Ministries. Check out more from Dustin:

Johannes Tauler: He Makes the Deaf Hear

Johannes Tauler: He Makes the Deaf Hear

August 1, 2019

Back in the 1300's, during the middle of the black plague outbreak in Strasburg, a monk named Johann Tauler preached. He visited the sick, continued to give sermons, and despite seeing a horrific outbreak of plague that would re-shape Europe and church culture forever, he stood strong in loving his neighbor.

In this sermon, "He Makes The Deaf To Hear," Johann Tauler talks about how we are all unable to hear and speak until the miracle of Christ allows us to. Our ears are blocked and unable to live or hear God's eternal Word without the power of Christ.
