The Light Is Free, Even Though It Is Costly

Today in the penultimate COVID Chronicle Derek Elkins goes full on Derek Elkins with a great three-scene story about light in a dark world. His story reminds me of the famous MLK quote — “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

Free Sermon

I’m feeling a theme for this week’s COVID Chronicles. It is our last week, and the theme is theology. Trust me, no one coordinated this because we’re not that smart. But that is what has happened — Kathy on Monday, Shaw yesterday, and then today Rob Cely does it again.

After you read the story, you’ll see how dark this image choice was. You’re welcome.

A Free Translation

This story . . . oh my. I just don’t have the words to do it justice. Joe Shaw is a treasure we know about and the rest of the world will some day recognize as such. Today’s COVID Chronicle is a parable we need today. We. Us. All of us.

Click on the Codex Vaticanus to read Joe’s story, “New Translation.” You might want to pray before you begin.

It dates to the fourth century A.D. So it is nearly as old as Joe Shaw himself.
