Jesus’ parable in Luke 12 is usually known as the parable of “The Rich Fool”. It could just as easily be titled “Bigger Barns” or “Rich Toward God”.
It is the story of a rich man whose crops were so abundant that when he realized his barns couldn’t hold all of the harvest, he decided to tear them down and build bigger ones. The story begs us to ask ourselves several questions. “How much is enough?” “What do we do with our abundance?”
“What’s needed to relax, drink and be merry?”
University Baptist & Brethren Church has established itself as a dynamic and progressive congregation since the April day in 1922 when a small group of people gathered to organize a Baptist Church in State College. The congregation — forty charter members — met in private homes and on campus until the first church building was dedicated in 1928.
