Sunday Morning Sermon — The Simplest Stories Are the Most Profound
0

One of the reasons I love stories are they take complex ideas and make them easy to understand.

I think that is why cartoons and children’s stories have been so powerful for so long. They take the complexities of life and communicate them in the way an eight year old can understand them.

Think about it. Some of the most powerful stories that have transcended generations are nothing more than stories meant for youth.

Every Story Needs A Comeback

There’s that one scene in every great movie. You know the one I’m talking about.

That scene where it looks like the hero is about to lose it all.

When George Bailey cries out to God in a drunken stupor, “I’m at the end of my rope.”

When Luke Skywalker finds out that his is the only spaceship left in the attack against the Death Star.

When Buzz Lightyear realizes that after all this time, he really is just an ordinary toy.

We can all relate to those characters, especially Buzz. We start out this life believing we’re capable of doing anything, that we’re invincible, that we can fly. Then life gives us a couple of dozen smacks across the face and we’re left struggling to believe if we ever possessed any value at all. Our disbelief opens the door wide open to Fear who invites Pain and Struggle along for the party, initiating a cycle of Pity Party Paralysis.
