Yesterday’s message …
- Dealt with Bezalel and Oholiab, two of the bible’s movers & shakers who no one has ever heard of;
- Gave the analogy that the tabernacle is to the temple as a food truck is to a restaurant (original!);
- Had the people in the sound & AV booth call me a Prima Donna Preacher;
- Concluded with part of an essay by author, columnist, and speechwriter Peggy Noonan that perfectly complemented the bottom line: God turns the Can’t Remember Whos into the Can’t Do Without.
AV of Faces In The Crowd, including me at HPHS in 1980.
That’s what a lot of life is like, isn’t it? When you feel like you are little more than a face in the crowd. Especially if you’re a natural introvert, it can be easy to go through life almost anonymously, as the same face in a series of crowds – at school, at work, at a ball game, in a traffic line, in a traffic line, IN A TRAFFIC LINE, at church. It can be so tempting to view life through the lens that others are the movers and the shakers while you’re just a watcher and observer. You spend your time with all the rest of the masses watching the movers and shakers operate. Sometimes it feels like life happens around you, sometimes in spite of you, rather than because of you or through you.
