Human Divinity: My Sunday Service

human divinity

I was invited back to the pulpit yesterday, and it was my great honor to create my second Sunday service.  My first one was in November, 2016, right after election day, and I got great feedback on it.  This time was a bit easier, having gained confidence from the first time around.  I had so many people ask me yesterday to please email them my sermon so they could read it over again, or because they were unable to be in church (the weather made travel very tricky).  I’m afraid I cannot remember everyone who asked for it, so I am publishing it here so anyone can come and read it, and, hopefully, be inspired.

It’s all just a massive video game

Life is a Massive Video Game

Is there anyone who hasn’t played a video game?  I suspect not.  I used to play an online game called World of Warcraft.  I used to play Dungeons and Dragons and other tabletop games.  I used to play Live-Action Role Playing games (LARPs).  All of these games involve creating a character through which you can participate in the game.

The character generation process involves things like choosing if you will play a Continue reading “It’s all just a massive video game”
