MONDAY, MAY 25th, 2020 - THEOLOGY ON TAP - From M.J.Perry - We will gather next Monday to begin discussing John Knox by Jane Dawson. I would suggest we read and be ready to discuss Chapters 1 – 5. The few of you with whom I’ve had conversations have said you have found it interesting and so I hope that will translate into a good discussion.

I have learned that the Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III, of Trinity United Church in Chicago, preached on “The Cross and the Lynching Tree” this past week. I am embedding the link because I thought you might be interested in watching it for a number of reasons. First, we read the book. Second, he preached this sermon within the context of the death of Ahmaud Arbery. Given that Cone believed that lynchings still occur, just by another name, it may be of interest to see how Moss uses Cone’s history and theological development in relation to this event. Third, this is the church home of the Obamas and where the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright was the senior pastor prior to Moss. You may remember it in the news in 2008-9. It has a strong, strong history of civil rights, social justice, outreach and education. I look forward to seeing you all on Monday. Stay safe. M.J.

Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous. (I have included these before but they are worth another look, I think)

Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.

The last thing I want to do is hurt you …. but it’s still on my list.

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong..

We never really grow up – we only learn how to act in public.

War does not determine who is right, only who is left.

Knowledge, is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

Have a good week. Stay safe. MB
