  • Sermon Starters (Epiphany 3B)(2021)

    by Doug Bratt
    In a January 31, 2020 USA Today article entitled, “In Sickness and in Health, But Not in Debt,” Jessica Menton writes about how student debt is “putting a damper on young Americans’ relationship decisions.” About a third of the respondents between the ages of 18 and 34 to a LendKey Technologies survey reported that they might postpone – or have already postponed – marriage until student debt is paid off. That number, Menton adds, shrunk among older respondents. About 17% of those between 35 and 54 would postpone marriage and 10% of those 55 and older would delay it.

  • God Only Knows

    Art and Faith by Lynn Miller
    So perhaps a Surrealist painting is the perfect vehicle to convey the appointed time. Kay Sage's painting here is titled just that: At the Appointed Time. I have no information that it is a religious or Biblically-based painting. Still, the title invites us to take a moment and look at the painting with scripture in mind. What do you see in the painting (literally what can you describe...there is a darkening gray sky, there is a horizon line in the middle of the picture, etc.)? What do you think about what you see? What do you wonder about this painting?...

    It reminds me of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. Scarlett is a self-absorbed schemer whose every emotion—or lack thereof—seems to be some kind of game. No one understands Scarlett better than Rhett Butler, and at the end of the film as Rhett prepares to quit Scarlett once and for all, he utters a line that sums her character up perfectly (and it is more devastating than the more famous “Frankly, my dear . . .” line that comes moments later). As he offers her a handkerchief, Rhett says, “Here, take my handkerchief. Never in any crisis of your life have I known you to have a handkerchief.” What Rhett means is that she’s never really shed a true tear. It’s all stagecraft, niggling, maneuvering, manipulating. She’s never had a hankie because she never really needed one...

  • Epiphany 3B (2018)

    by Chris Reiter
    Do you remember reading the classic novel, Where the Red Fern Grows? This is a story about a boy who is to raise a couple of young pups, Little Ann and Old Dan, to be coon dogs. But he needs a raccoon pelt to teach them the scent. So, Billy gets advice from his grandpa. His grandpa helps him to understand the nature of raccoons - they like shiny things and have a really hard time letting go of that which is shiny, that which captures their attention. Billy was told to drill some holes in old stumps and downed trees and put something shiny in the bottom of those holes, followed by nails driven in at an angle pointed toward the bottom of the holes. A raccoon, once captivated by the object in the bottom of the hole will do about anything to get it. It will reach in and grab hold of the object and never let go. With a clinched fist and the shiny object in it’s hand, the raccoon is caught, unwilling to release that which it desires...

    by Stan Mast
    The whole idea of living in shortened time is explored with devastating honesty in a couple of recent books. The young adult book, The Fault in Our Stars, focuses on two teenaged cancer patients, Augustus and Hazel Grace. Though Augustus has apparently conquered his cancer (at the cost of an amputated leg), Hazel Grace is terminal. Is there any point in falling in love when the time is short? Spoiler alert! Yes, gloriously and painfully, yes!...

    Sermon Starter by Leonard Sweet
    ("Thirty years ago, the big hit movie, the 'it' teen adventure film, was called Back To The Future (1985). It starred Michael J. Fox and in that now classic film, time travel was made possible by a machine called the 'flux capacitor'. This machine was 'hot-wired' to the hottest car of that age, a 'DeLorian'. Does anyone remember the year that far-distant, fantastic-future-time-traveling teen hero lands in? 2015...")
