A blog post on The Sneetches made me think of Dr Seuss’s books and the theology behind it. I left this comment on the blog:
“I love Dr Seuss. The first sermon I ever preached at one of the churches I pastored [North Beach Baptist Church, Perth, West Australia] started with a reading from Green Eggs and Ham – it talked about the ability to try new things. Much theology in the Sneetches also, of course.”
Oh yeah and I spelled Seuss wrong in the title but have corrected it. Sorry.
Love this, Andrew … and love the Sneeches. We talk about “sneeching” all the time in our house — you know, walking with your head down and your shoulders hunched because you are bummed. ;^) Dr. Seuss knew his stuff! Kind of like Charles Shultz and Peanuts….
To any Christian who laments that being stuck single, they will miss out on having children, I tell the parable Horton Hatches the Egg. An unmarried elephant, through patience and faithfulness that the natural mother lacked, bears a child, a beautiful hybrid of its natural mother and its spiritual father.
god love is amazing you cant see .
