I had to take a week off. But grateful to be back this week with the following words.
Duck. I don’t know about you, but the last 10 days have been trying, to say the least. The Lord has blessed us with freedom to cast our votes for our elected leaders. But after that, processing the votes is almost as hard as getting something to pass at a Baptist Deacon’s Meeting. I’m going to accept that Brother Joe Biden (Catholic) will be our new leader with a woman in ministry at his side. I hope you’ll join me on my knees as we pray for Brother Trump and his faithful that a spirit of acceptance wash over them. Let us also pray for the upcoming Thanksgiving meal at the White House. May the turkey served therein be healthier than the gimp duck that is roaming around the District of Columbia for the next couple of months. Amen.
Dave. I don’t stay up late on Saturday nights so that I’m fully rested to teach my Sunday School lesson the next morning. Consequently, I don’t view the televised trash of Live performances on Saturday Night. However, an acquaintance from another religion made me aware of Brother Dave Chappelle’s sermon this past Saturday and sent me the video on the YourTube. Filthy. Such language. And open cigarette smoking! My biggest complaint was his claim that he uses punchlines in order to speak what he calls the “truth.” Can you imagine? Someone who would use satire disguised as humor (or vice versa) in order to transmit subversive messages? Such people should be run out of town………..
Double. Let us pause to mourn, Brother and Sisters. Brother Alex Trebec, famed Canadian and wholesome television host, has been called to his reward. It bereaves me whenever we lose someone from the TV who was actually worth watching. Cancer put his life in jeopardy what he never stopped acknowledging questions that came his way on a daily basis. In whatever category he will be memorialized, may we give him a daily double of remembrance from this day forward. And may the Lord welcome him with the words “well done, my good and faithful servant,” prompting him to reply, “What do I want to hear at the Pearly Gates?”
