Staying Alive

Yes, my long absence from the blogging world is coming to an end.  I will be taking up the pen, or should I say, the keyboard again in order to express profound and pithy comments about a variety of subjects in the world.

In this entry, however, please note that I have added my one and only recorded sermon of the past two years to my sermon list.  I have been preaching almost every week, but the little church I do this with does not have recording equipment set up, and I am not quite vain enough to insist upon changing this situation.  Nevertheless, one of the worshipers brought his video recording equipment last Easter, and I'm just now getting around to posting it.  The recording is missing a beginning and an end (a description which could apply to many sermons), but contains about 95% of the sermon as delivered.  It is longer than my usual sermon, but, hey, it was Easter!  
For those of you who like my preaching, enjoy!  For those of you who are being forced to watch due to compulsions beyond your control (such as a pastor search committee), mercy upon you!
I'll be writing more soon.  After all, since I ceased making frequent comments in the blogosphere, my denomination, the Presbyterian Church USA, decided to relate more to today's "post modern" world by becoming clearly and officially "post Christian."  A rather daunting step of arrogance and rebellion, especially if one still believes God has anything to do with faith and life, but still a step that will provide much material for cause and comment.

In the meantime, Keep The Celebration Going!
