Sermon Sundays

On Easter Sunday

1 Cor 5:6b-7c
“Brothers and sisters:
Do you not know that a little yeast leavens all the dough?
Clear out the old yeast,
so that you may become a fresh batch of dough,
inasmuch as you are unleavened.”

Listen to me rant about my crappy life, instead of talking about something interesting like resurrection.

"this bottle will one day be empty but that can be a beautiful thing"

Ps 22:2a
“My God, my God,
why have you abandoned me?”

I ramble on at length about getting high and decide it’s definitely NOT the same as getting crucified.

San Francisco's Pier 7 (Pier to Nowhere)

Is 43:18-19a
“Remember not the events of the past,
the things of long ago consider not;
see, I am doing something new!”

I ramble on about an acid trip I had one time.

Auguste Rodin - The Prodigal Son

Lk 15:1-3
The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to him,
but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying,
“This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”
So to them he addressed this parable.

My thoughts on the story of The Prodigal Son.

On Failure

Lk 9:28
“Jesus took Peter, John, and James
and went up the mountain to pray.”

Listen to me bitch about my life instead of write a sermon. Just like blogging used to be!

The Devil As Scorpion

Lk 4:7
“All this will be yours, if you worship me.

Reflections on Christ’s confrontation with The Devil in the desert. Also a quick survey of three-act structure.

The Inner Path

Jer 17:7-8
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose hope is the LORD.
He is like a tree planted beside the waters
that stretches out its roots to the stream:
it fears not the heat when it comes;
its leaves stay green;
in the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit.”

Jung’s thoughts on God and the Unconscious, with my commentary.

The Who?

Lk 5-10: “Jesus said to Simon, ‘Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.'” Thoughts on Super Bowl XLIV and the urge to influence.

Caravaggio: The Conversion on the Way to Damascus

1 Cor 13:9-10 “For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.”

"Hang The Medal On That Guy" / Marino Frost
