- Centered around the most famously insignificant governor of all time, Pontius Pilate;
- Open and closed with anecdotes involving funerals;
- Took a title from a relatively obscure Steve Winwood song while also referencing Lynrd Skynrd and Pink Floyd;
- Landed at this bottom line: When it comes to Jesus, indecision is the worst decision of them all.
time ago, I was involved in hosting a really sad funeral here. The man who had died was only distantly
connected here, he had died suddenly & tragically, and his wife of only a
couple of months was quite literally in shock throughout. The service itself involved a lot of moving
parts and there were all kinds of competing voices for who gets to do what and
say what as we remembered this man.
Finally, on the day of the service, we’re starting in an hour or so, this
beleaguered wife told me that one more person had put in more request just that
morning to have a role in the service, and she concluded by saying, “I cannot make another decision on
this. You decide yes or no on this
one. I am all out of decisions.”
