Sermon Illustrations

And since we work hard and live so affluently as part of the American Empire, when prices rise or we lose our jobs or another company makes a “run for the border” or gas prices hit $3.00 a gallon, most of us don’t consider God. He may be a peripheral idea. Out here on the edges of consciousness but it the economy or one of the political parties or whatever that either gets the blame or the credit. After 9/11, we were told to get back at the terrorists who destroyed the twin towers (a symbol in their minds of American prosperity) to keep spending out money. I’ll say that again, “Keep spending our money.”
