O Lazarus, Where Art Thou? Part 1, with Pastor Mark Downey of Kinsman Redeemer Ministries.

During a phone conversation which we had the other day, I made the remark to pastor Mark Downey that rather than the children throwing their crumbs to the dogs, today we are in a situation where the dogs are throwing crumbs to the children. When he told me that he had explained that situation very similarly in a recent sermon, well, I had called him to ask if he had anything that he would like to present at Christogenea this weekend, and now here we are this evening with that sermon.

The title of Mark’s sermon is O Lazarus, Where Art Thou? This is not a reference to the Lazarus who was resurrected by Christ, but rather it refers to the impoverished Lazarus of the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus. This Lazarus is indeed one of the children hoping for crumbs to fall from the table of the dogs.
