Pretty Crosses
This week had Jean do a Google image search for “pretty crosses.” Here’s some of what she found:

This is a stained glass window in a cathedral in Europe. We couldn’t figure out where exactly, but it’s beautiful isn’t it?

If you’ve ever driven interstate 35 through Oklahoma, here’s a cross you might have noticed. This is a huge cross at Lifechurch in Edmond, OK. They light it up at night and you can see it for miles before you actually get to it.

Parrot Food
In the book the consistory is reading together right now called The Cross-Centered Life, C.J. Mahaney tells this story:

On Monday, Alice bought a parrot. It didn’t talk, so the next day she returned to the pet store.

“He needs a ladder,” she was told. She bought a ladder, but another day passed and the parrot still didn’t say a word.

“How about a swing?” the clerk suggested.

High Degree Stress
I’m going to tell you a story, but allow me to preface it by explaining something about myself. I am prone to motion sickness. Roller coasters are not my thing. Spinning in circles is not my thing.

60 Hours to Change the World
60 hours is not a lot of time. 2 and a ½ days. What can you accomplish in that amount of time?

If I’ve got nothing else to do, I can read a John Grisham novel in about 2 ½ days. It takes me about 2 and a ½ days at work to write a sermon. Not that I like doing it, but it takes about 2 and a ½ days to paint a room. But other than that, 2 and ½ days is not really that much time.

Death Working Backwards

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is C.S. Lewis’s classic children’s book and parable of the Easter story.

Many of you know the story, but I’ll give you a quick summary. Edmund, the younger boy, is seduced by the witch’s chocolates and turns traitor on his friends. According to the Ancient Law written on the Stone Table--Deep Magic from the Dawn of Time--the witch now has the right to demand Edmund's blood. As she explains: "Every traitor belongs to me as my lawful prey and...for every treachery I have a right to a kill."
