We use projected artwork in our worship service each week and this week posed a problem. I'm going the Ascension route instead of Easter 7, and the pictures are... well... I don't know.
Too feet-y. (OK, this Dali one isn't as bad as the others)
So, the artwork isn't going to be my inspiration this time around. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't, but with the Ascension it just couldn't be for me. The depiction are more literal than I can look at without snickering. Instead I'm finding inspiration in the season. Summer is upon us. Vacations are coming (or unpaid leaves if your spouse works for the state government in The State Next Door). Road trips are upon us. "Are we there yet?" we hear in my car and thousands like it across the country. "Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?" sounds an awful lot the same to me.
Where are you finding your inspiration this week? What images (visual, verbal, or experiential) are calling your sermon out of you?
