Welcome to Worship at Charlestown & Garden Suburb.  This is a video of our live worship service on 18 September, Pentecost 15.  The readings today are 1 Timothy 2: 1-7 and Luke 16: 1-13.  The gospel reading today is one of Jesus's difficult parables, concerning the shrewd manager.  Perhaps this demonstrates the irrepressible nature of the Kingdom of God.  What do you think?  Today's message also includes a conversation between Rev Tom and Mike.  You might like to have a similar conversation this week.
