Displaced fragments: theology, ministry, interviews and reviews
I used an ice skating illustration preaching on 1 John 2 yesterday. The Christian keeps aiming for 6.0 although he doesn't attain it. You'll appreciate the thought, perhaps.
I don't think that I would have got 6.0 on Saturday.I used the experience in a children's talk to illustrate the perfect life of Jesus. I told the congregation that they would have been amazed to see me skating without falling over. But nothing is more amazing that Jesus' holy life. The illustration got me into a bit of trouble with the Mrs after church, because I gracelessly let slip that she kept crashing into the ice!
