Not Funny Like Ha Ha
Jay is out of town on family business, practicing what he teaches. He originally planned on giving an Easter Sunday talk live from the road, but plans changed and he was unable to. So guest speaker Joshua Murray stepped in to give the talk instead. Struggling with his own mental health, Josh tried to find a hopeful message that fits into the spirit and meaning of Easter – His talk had more mentions of Dalmatians than one would think an Easter talk would have, but there is a method to his madness…or is it? Did Moses start planting ideas of Jesus setting us free from the law before the law even came to be? Why does God always seem to be passing us by? Can we find common ground with Elijah's crippling depression? What if we are incapable of living out Grace on our own and need people to lean on to remind us how to show grace? Is that why Jesus specifies needing at least two people to be a church? Why is this tree so useless? Why are Talents so much money? Also, why is this rabbit smoking so much? Did Josh mean to use imagery of a rabbit for an Easter talk, or was it something he just realized right now writing this very description you are reading? The world may never know! (But the other answers might just be in the talk.) Enjoy!
This talk was given on April 17, 2022 in Long Island, NY.
