The Bigger Picture

I recently heard a parable from one of my favorite modern authors and thinker adrienne maree brown. She talked about a fisherman who went out fishing and saw a body in the river where they fished. They jumped out of the boat and pulled the body to shore and saved them. The next day this person saw two bodies floating down the river. They quickly grabbed a friend and were able to pull both out and save them. This continued every day where more and more bodies were coming down the river and the fisherman was unable to save everyone. The fisherman got more and more exhausted trying to save everyone in the river even as they built up rafts and docks to catch as many as possible. It was never enough. The moral of this parable is to go upstream and find the reason that people are ending up in the river in the first place… (adrienne maree brown on the podcast “How To Survive the End of the World, Star Wars: A Spoiler Extravaganza,” December 29, 2017.)

You Are Not Alone

The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to aContinue reading “You Are Not Alone”

Interdependence Day

Our second scripture reading this morning comes to us from Pauls’ second letter to the Corinthian church, the twelfth chapter. Listen as Paul attempts to show the Corinthian people that God’s definition of power might look different than theirs.  I know a person in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the thirdContinue reading “Interdependence Day”
