Thoughts On a Sermon

People have often asked me if the stories I use in my sermons are real stories. Yes, they are. Some have wondered how much I embellish the account I tell. Well, that’s between me and my God. No, I’m kidding; the stories I tell best/easiest are the ones that are true to me. If something seems a little memorable---that’s why I’m telling you the story!

Yesterday’s sermon had one such story. I suppose I could see where someone might think the story with Slim Jim and I is a little too after-school-special. But that’s why I remember it; that’s why it has remained a vivid image of the Church for me.
