Not So Long After Sunrise

I just reworked my entire sermon for the Sunday after Easter. It's about light. The light of the Resurrection. I'm thinking this image would do just as well as the words I've been wrestling with. Maybe I should forget about preaching and just pass a copy of the photograph around.

How about showing the photo on a vid screen behind you while you preach it?

LOLOL.

You know I am an unapologetic progressive in theology and an unrepentant traditonalist in worship!

does that sermon go into a dark place? light can't be appreciated quite as much as when it is missing. I think all this flame and electricity has weakened the power of seeing the Lord as the light.

sometimes venturing to uncomfortable places show us the light... bring on that vid screen!!!

I'm with PG and stratoz--use the screen.

I've come to appreciate what the appropriate and creative use of a screen can add to worship. Many people today respond much better to a visual presentation than to just an auditory one.

Just gorgeous. Did you photoshop this or is it "as is"?

Carol: I don't remember! I'll have to look when I get home.

I can't imagine you preaching in front of a vid screen. The picture is beautiful!

Beautiful! Knowing you in the little ways that I do, your sermon will be a light in the darkness.
