Sermon Illustrations


An Amber Alert was issued for five-year-old Haleigh Ann-Marie Cummings of Satsuma, Florida, on February 10, 2009, hours after the little girl vanished from the bedroom of her home in the pre-dawn hours. On February 11, 2009, Florida authorities said they believed Cummings had been kidnapped from her home. The search continued for the child on February 12, 2009, and family members made emotional pleas for Cummings¡¦ return. Cummings father, Ronald Cummings, told NBC¡¦s Today show "I know somebody took her. I know for a fact she didn¡¦t wander off--she¡¦s afraid of the dark."

The story of Haleigh’s disappearance has mobilized her Florida Community and the surrounding areas. People have voluntarily joined the search for this little girl. Most of us can understand the sympathy being expressed the empathetic motivation to help search for her.

But would our hearts be as stirred if it wasn’t a five-year-old little girl that was missing. How would we respond if it was . . .

a crack addict,

a partying college student,

a hooker,

an old woman,

a tattooed man, a pierced, alternative-lifestyled individual?
