  11. 11. 2 He was in the beginning with God.3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4 in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
  12. 12. John, the Witness6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.8 He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.15 (John testified to him and cried out, "This was he of whom I said, He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me.")

  22. 22. I ask them to take a poem and hold it up to the light like a color slide or press an ear against its hive. I say drop a mouse into a poem and watch him probe his way out,Introduction or walk inside the poems room To Poetry and feel the walls for a light switch. Billy Collins I want them to waterski across the surface of a poem waving at the authors name on the shore. But all they want to do is tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it. They begin beating it with a hose to find out what it really means.
  23. 23. I was at Barnes and Noble today studying and working on a sermon for Thursdayand a girl sat down at a table next to me. She said hello and asked me what I wasdoing...and being the fool that I am I said..."Working on a speech for a class"...thenfeeling that all too familiar kick in the conscious not to be ashamed of the Gospeland I said, "Well, actually, it is a sermon--something like a speech that pastors give togive witness to God ..." She said, "Oh, I see, cool." Then she brought all of her stuff,sat down at my table in the chair across from me, grabbed my notebook with mynotes to look at, and said..."Ok. Im listening..." And then I preached the word...thetext: John 3:14-21. YES, THIS REALLY HAPPENED. What did [I] re-learn today? Ourpulpits are truly not in the fronts of churches or high and lofty ivory towers; dare weeven say the serpent raising institutions and mindsets, of which I am surely a part,that have misused and imprisoned texts like John 3:16 with false glory andcondemnation. Nay brothers and sisters, our pulpits are and always have been in theworld, and they are there in every new and unexpected place of darkness calling usto point to Christ and to shine the penetrating, life-giving light of the Gospel of God.The God who loves the world deeply. The God who makes all things new...createsout of nothing...brings hope out of despair...the God who constantly restores andreorders how we understand power and witness...Yes, our God, the great I AM whois revealed in Christ on the cross...the God who has called us each his belovedchildren...and the God who has freed us to live that very identity in the world. "Thisis my commandment: love one another." ♥ Silly God.
