Is that a mood ring I see? Wait – is that really a pet rock? And Clackers? Is that you in that picture with the Cabbage Patch Kid? All we have to do is wait a few minutes and the latest in the fad-series will wash over us. Whether it is mullets or Crocs or the Macarena there is always a Next Big Thing on the horizon.
The odd thing about the Big Things is that they never seem to leave so much as a footprint when they pass along. What would happen if the Next Big Thing were big enough to change us – forever? Our Scripture passages for this Sunday’s worship service are Psalm 89:1- 8, Matthew 10:34-42 and Romans 6:12-23.
