A Fool and his Money?

What is it about the main character in what we know as “The Parable of the Rich Fool” that gets up God’s nose? Does God hate the rich? Is there something wrong with capital accumulation, which is after all the basis of our productive economy? Does God enjoy playing “gotch” with us when we feel most secure and entitled to a little R&R after years of hard work? All these questions and more besides lurk around this Sunday’s gospel reading from Luke 12, not that i have undertaken to address them all in my podcast. (They do make a tempting research project however, if anyone out there would like to do some collaborative work on this topic with me). You can listen to my comments here…
