(August 25, 2013) We can be trapped by our fear and pain and the tapes we play in our heads, and so mired in our trapped-ness that even when the obstacles are removed, it is hard for us to break free. I believe that we are set free when we find the courage and faith and conviction that come from living as who we are called to be. Are you a flea… or a bird? (Jeremiah 1:4-10, Luke 13:10-17)
This sermon relies heavily on these two video clips. I played this clip about training fleas to leap only within the confines of their container before I began to preach, and then this clip from the television show “Lost” just before the end of the sermon.
