6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

(Ill.) For a number of years, I traveled to Dayton, OH,

for a continuing education experience for my

Computer Science job at the college. One summer we

were walking over to Arby’s for lunch – we had

walked out the back door of the classroom building,

across the parking lot. We came to a grassy incline

that stood in the most direct path to Arby’s. As

others went down that little hill, I saw that it

would be safe – or so I thought. I started down the

slope but then my right foot started to slip. I

tried to recover with my left foot, but then it

slipped too. You can perhaps picture it, Pastor

Johnson, down on his hind end.
