August 18, 2013 “Engage … With the Heart of Jesus”


ILLUSTRATION – Most of us here have had some exposure to Star Trek, either the TV series or the movies. Maybe your memories go all the way back to the Starship Enterprise and the crew of Captain James T. Kirk. I have to say that those early years of Star Trek were a little hokey for me. The younger among us have seen the movies that focus on Captain Kirk when he was a younger man, and that’s OK, I guess. In my book, the greatest days for Star Trek were the days of Star Trek … The Next Generation. Captain Jean-Luc Picard is an inspiring leader. So I have to confess that just about every time I think about the title of this new sermon series I’m beginning today, I can’t help but think about the words of Captain Picard … “Engage!”
