6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

I read a fascinating description of processionary caterpillars, which follow one another in a procession.

An experiment was conducted in which a bunch of them were placed onto the rim of a flowerpot with food inside. True to their nature, the caterpillars followed one another in an endless circular progression until they died of starvation.

We must not be processionary Christians who follow one another around and around in the same circles until the church dies of attrition – erosion or gradual loss.
