Fathers day

What Makes a Dad

~ Anonymous ~

God took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,

The comforting arm of night,

The wisdom of the ages,

The power of the eagle's flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed,

The patience of eternity,

The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,

When there was nothing more to add,

He knew His masterpiece was complete,

and so,

He called it...Dad

Pastor message2

Dear Friends


I wanted to share a sermon with you I preached earlier this month.  It was inspired by John 5:1-9 and is titled, "Get Up and Walk."

In our passage from John this morning...we heard Jesus ask a man who had been ill for 38 years...if he wanted to be made well again.

This seems like a fairly odd question to ask someone who has been sick for so long...seems like you would already know the answer to that question.  

 And it’s also a fairly odd question to ask someone who is laying beside a pool waiting to be miraculously healed by its waters....seems like you would be able to tell that person is willing to go to whatever lengths it be healed.

While this question may seem somewhat odd and mysterious...the pool itself remained a mystery for many many years.

* * * * * * * 

For centuries, scholars believed there was no such pool...because there was no sign of it in modern-day Jerusalem.  So for the longest time...this story was treated as a metaphor...rather than an actual account with a historical location. the 19th century, an archaeologist by the name of  Schick discovered a pool, which he contended was the pool from John 5.  Further excavation in 1964 revealed other features that confirmed that it was in fact this pool.

But, here’s the piece I find most interesting: the pool was also used as an ancient healing temple...a place where healing was supposed to take place by the power of Asclepius, the Greek God of healing. Asclepius was even called “savior”  by his followers.

According to this explanation, people believed that this Greek God would come and stir the waters in the healing temple...and that whoever was the first to enter the pool after the waters had been stirred...would be healed of his or her malady.

So this is why the pool and the surrounding area had become the gathering place for anyone...with any sort of sickness...especially the blind, the lame, and the paralyzed. They all gathered there...watching the surface of the water...waiting for this Greek God to cause the smallest ripple in the waters so they could jump in and be healed.

* * * * * * * 

So while it may seem like a fairly odd question for Jesus to ask a man who had been sick for 38 years if he wanted to be made well...what Jesus was really asking him was...Do you want to believe in the real savior...not just a Greek God who people call savior?

And while it may seem odd for Jesus to ask a man who is laying beside a healing pool...if he wants to be healed...what Jesus was really asking him was...Do you want to trust in something that actually works and has the power to heal you...and not just sit here and wait for some waters to stir?

Now the mans response to Jesus’ question was somewhat interesting and puzzling as well.  

* * * * * * * 

When Jesus asked this man if he wanted to be made well...we  would expect to hear a resounding “Yes” from him...since he’s been sick for so long.

However for this guy...instead of responding enthusiastically in the affirmative...the man offered a couple of complaints or a couple obstacles as to why he couldn’t be healed.  

He says...“Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up...and then he says...and while I am making my way, someone else steps down ahead of me”.

It appears as if what is standing in the way of this man’s’s his own negative thinking...that is preventing him from being healed...his negative thinking about his situation...his disbelief in himself...and his disbelief in what Jesus can do for him.    

And at this point in the story...Jesus then tells the the man to get up, grab his mat...and walk. 

Now this may seem like a harsh command someone who has been sick for 38 years to stand up...grab his stuff and walk on...but there is significance in Jesus words.

The first part of the significance in Jesus’ words...lies in Jesus telling him to get up!

* * * * * * *

 The Greek word that is used here to command the man to get up...can be translated as...rise or stand...but it can also be translated as...awaken!

So Jesus wasn’t trying to be rude or harsh to the man...rather he was telling awaken from all this disbelief in himself...and this negative way of thinking...that had left him sick for 38 years.

To awaken from this absurd belief that a Greek God was his savior and was going to come down...and save him by stirring some waters that would magically heal him.  


Instead...Jesus was telling him to awaken a new positive way of thinking.  To believe in trust in God for healing....and to awaken to what all God could achieve with him and through him.  

* * * * * * * *   

Now there are times in our lives...when it is easy for us to be this guy.  It is easy to slip into a mindset of negative thinking...thinking negatively about ourselves or about what God can do in our lives...or whether God can improve what seems like an impossible situation for us.

We are reminded this morning of the power of God...and we’re asked to awaken to a more positive way of thinking...where we believe in ourselves...where we trust and believe in all the great things that God can do with us...and through us.

Recently I stumbled upon some inspirational information about some top celebrities who have experienced obstacles in their own life...but yet they still went on to do big and great things.


I wanted to share this information with you because it helps us to see how all of us face obstacles and difficulties in life...and how those things don’t have to hamper or hinder us from moving forward and achieving great things.  

* * * * * * * 

At age 23, Oprah was devastated when she was fired from her first reporting job...but that didn’t stop she is a media mogul, owns her own television networks and is worth billions. At age 23, Tina Fey was working at a she has a net worth of $45 million.  At age 24, Stephen King was working as a janitor and living in a trailer.  At age 27, Vincent Van Gogh failed as a missionary and decided to go to art school.  At age 28, J.K. Rowling was a suicidal...single parent living on she has written over 13 books...including the Harry Potter series.  At age 30, Harrison Ford was a carpenter.
Vera Wang failed to make the Olympic figure skating team, then she didn’t get the Editor-in-Chief position at Vogue, but yet she went on to design her first dress at age 40.  She now has her own multi million dollar clothing line and is branching out into jewelry design as well.

Samuel L. Jackson didn’t get his first movie role until he was 46.  Morgan Freeman landed his first MAJOR movie role at age 52.  Grandma Moses didn’t begin her painting career until age 76.  Louise Bourgeois didn’t become a famous artist until she was 78.


Moral of the story...Never tell yourself that you aren’t good enough. or that you missed your chance. Never let an obstacle stand in the way of moving forward and dreaming big about what God can do with your life.

* * * * * * *

This morning we are reminded to awaken to a more positive way of thinking...where we believe in ourselves...where we trust and believe in all the great things that God can do with our lives.

We are invited to dream big about what God has in store for us.....or what we would like to see happen with our lives...and as you dream big about these prepared to have to put some work in for it.

Those celebrities didn’t hit an obstacle and qive up....they worked hard to get where they are today.  Oprah Winfrey rose from poverty, abuse, and prejudice to become one of the most influential people on the planet.  After being fired from her first reporting job....she now earns an annual salary of $315 million.

In order to do great things...there is work involved...And that is the other significant part about what Jesus said to the man by the pool.  

After Jesus commanded this man to get awaken to all these new possibilities for his life...Jesus told him to walk!

* * * * * * * *

Essentially what Jesus was saying to the man...was to move and start doing work.  Now that his man was cured of his illness he was going to have to get a job, he was going to have to support his family, he was  going have to give back to society in some way...essentially he was going to have to walk around and conduct his life.

William Sloane Coffin...a great minister and peace activist...once is certainly scarier to be cured from an illness than to actually be sick...because if you are cured than you become responsible...and that is to say that you are to respond to God’s to respond to the word and love of Christ.  Able to cease being a victim.  

 When you become response-able you have to work this thing called life.     

* * * * * * *    

I heard a story recently about a young Episcopal priest from Philadelphia.  This man is present day about my age...maybe a little older.  He is the priest for a large Episcopal church in downtown big it holds three services each Sunday which are packed.  

Well this young Episcopal priest had a dream.  His dream was to take the cemetery that the church owned and develop it into a school.  There was just one grave in this cemetery it was the grave of John Wanamaker...the pioneer of the first department store...which was called John Wanamaker and Co.

The reason this young priest wanted to take this cemetery and  build a school was because the school system in Philadelphia was a private system.  So every student had to apply to the various schools around the city...which meant that some kids didn’t get into the top schools or even the mediocre schools.  

It meant that the kids who lived in the impoverished areas and didn’t have a well known last name...or lots of money to donate...went to the worst schools and just got lost in the system until they ended up in the streets involved with drugs and committing crimes.      

* * * * * * * *

So this young priest went and talked to everyone he had to in order to have John Wanamakers grave moved and this cemetery and approved for a school to be built on it.

But despite all the work...he got it done and it was all approved.

Next this young priest had to contact everyone he knew in the church, out of the church...and around the city for donations and investments in this school project.

But despite all the hard work...he secured the funding for it...the school was built.

Next this young priest decided that he and some of his friends were going to get on their bikes and ride around the roughest parts of Philadelphia....and as they rode around these parts and ran into the kids in the street...he and his friends would talk to the kids who had been denied from all the other schools...and he invited them to come to his school for free. no application fees like the other schools or yearly dues.

Those kids were elated about this possibility...they enrolled...and then they worked hard to stay in that school.  They were required to attend school 6 days a week and the one day they had off they were required to go to church.  

After just one year of being in operation...there was a graduating class of 86.  86 kids who didn’t have any hope for their lives or their future received a high school diploma.  86 kids who would have probably ended up in jail or died from drug overdoes...where given a new opportunity and a new possibility to go on to college.  

It took a lot of hard work from this young priest and it took a lot of hard work from those kids...but they all put the work in and did something great!

* * * * * * * *

God wants us to dream big...God wants us to look at our lives and this world and see endless possibilities no matter our matter our circumstance.  

We know it takes hard work to achieve great things...But God wants us to work hard at making our life and this world a better place.  

God wants us to get up and walk with him!

May we all awaken to the possibilities that surround us...and may we put in the hard work that it takes to achieve them.


Your Pastor and Friend,
