Following yesterday’s heavy bloggage, today there is some levity…
I have just acquired a book by Milton Jones: “10 second sermons.” Don’t get too excited if you are part of the church where I minister, I am not planning to emulate him. But I thought it would be worth sharing some of them with you. They are funny, but like the best parables there is a hidden message that can make you go ‘hmmm’.
If being a Christian is only about not doing certain things, then that’s a bit like a celebrity chef who is more famous for his allergies and intolerances.
I am quite prepared for you to say what you want about my faith as long as I can say what I like about your lack of it.
Sometimes people think of church as being like a giant helicopter. They don’t want to get too close in case they get sucked into the rotas.
Others think of it as a Winnie the Pooh pyjama suit. Safe and warm, but they hope to goodness no one sees them in it.
Sometimes religion can seem like the last person in a long game of Chinese whispers. Once Jesus said, ‘Love God and each other’, and now we have the Easter Bunny!
Be blessed, be a blessing.
