Soul Repair: Out of the Closet, Into the Light
Four stories from John's gospel will shape our worship and contemplation for five Sundays. For this one, it was John 3, the story of Nicodemus under the cover of night. We heard The Killers' "All These Things That I've Done," imagined it as Nicodemus' theme song: "Another head aches, another heart breaks / I'm so much older than I can take... / These changes ain't changing me / the cold- (or gold-?) hearted boy I used to be. Oh, you gotta' help me out." And then we watched Nicodemus sneak back to his closet, still in the dark. Even Jesus doesn't bat a thousand.
