LET'S PLAY ILLUSTRATION- The game where I give you a scenario and you tell me what spiritual analogies can be drawn from it.

During the latest wildfire to threaten our mountain we drove out to inspiration point to get a view of the fire, which was a few miles distant, but still quite visible. Sarah and I were surprised by how large the crowd was out there. Here I've photographed some of them looking out towards the fire.

Pillars of salt are too easy.

I'd draw the analogy that many Christians are watching the world burn while feeling, perhaps, that we have plenty of "firefighters" on the job. That the flames are too wild, too overwhelming for a simple person as myself and I trust that some greater machinery of men is "on it". And like a simple civilian Californian trusts that the state and the apparatus thereof are steadily deploying their resources, I, as a simple Christian hardly ever think to grab a shovel, navigate an eroding hill and set to work on a hotspot.

I would sum up the sermon as "Christian Civilians".

Pillar of salt though too.
