Basic #4: Ta-Dah!
The last sermon in the series "Basics" is indebted to the great Southern Catholic novelist and philosopher of language Walker Percy, whose book of essays Message In a Bottle: How Queer Man Is, How Queer Language Is, and What One Has To Do with the Other (1975) is one of the most important books I ever read. Also, please read Matthew 4:12-23. Also, please take a look at Rob Bell's What We Talk About When We Talk About God (2013) which I quote at the end of the sermon, from page 125 in my copy. Also, please take a look at these illustrations which popped up as appropriately timed slides during the imaginative exercise at the beginning of the sermon. Thank you for listening.
