This Sunday at DFC: Turn your clock back!

To Infinity… and Beyond!

“To infinity,” declares Buzz Lightyear, “… And beyond!” This delightful little proclamation is one of the great non-sequiturs of our day.  If you contemplate infinity, you know by definition that there is no “beyond.”  What could possibly be beyond infinity?  It doesn’t make sense.  Unless, of course, you are contemplating God.

Which is what we are going to do today.  We will lift our minds and hearts to thoughts of the Kingdom of God.  And that transcends the world we see and sense all around us.

The gateway to this contemplation is simple story.  Jesus speaks in parables.  There is a literal interpretation.  But Jesus’ intent is clear.  He wants us to see past the literal.  And as we do, we begin to see God’s purposes.  We sense God’s passion for his creation.  We begin to see with the eyes of our hearts.

So this Sunday, we will stretch our minds beyond infinity.

Be sure to set your clock back on Saturday night.  If you forget, you’ll arrive an hour early!
