Goober’s Words of Wisdom 2-15-09
This morning’s sermoncontinued Pastor’s series on Jesus’ “Bag of Tricks” The miracle of raising Lazurus from the dead in John 11. Pastor entitled his sermon “Dead Man Walking”, referencing the 1996 movie by the same title. Goober, being five had never heard of that movie. The first thing he thought of was of course zombies.
The first thing Goober, Ricky, and Micky did was scatter red wrapping paper all over the place. Visually exciting to be sure, but very confusing to Pastor Gary. After explaining to Pastor Gary that they were setting a zombie trap, Goober and Ricky did their best zombie impersonations to help Pastor Gary.
Micky then thought that Goober and Ricky had in fact become zombies and got out his trusty butterfly net to capture the zombies. Pastor Gary had a difficult time explaining to Goober that Lazurus was not a zombie. Goober had come prepared with a first aid kit to heal wounds caused by zombie bites, nets to capture zombies, and the aforementioned crinkly blood-red wrapping paper. The wrapping paper was to both attract the zombies and warn everyone by making noise when the zombies walked all over it.
After much discussion about the habits of zombies, Pastor Gary was able to convince Goober and Ricky that Lazurus was not a zombie.
