The Jazz Theologian

Well I’m back from my vacation just in time to catch opening day for The Dark Knight…It’s good to be back with th incredible servants of CCC…one of the great things about vacation was all the unhurried time that I was able to spend with my children…for example…

Barbara and I have been working with one of our sons on responsibility for a while now.  I sat down next to him and said, “I have something to tell you that is going to change your life.”  

“What’s that?”  He said.

I replied, “You can’t be responsible.”  He looked puzzled.  After all we have been taking every chance to teach him how to do this.  “No, you can’t be responsible. It’s not possible.”  

“But you’ve been telling me…”

“I know,” I said, “but you can never do it…”  I then let him in on the secret, “…only God can do it through you.”

He thought about that statement a little while and then I saw a sense of relief come over him.  I knew he had fully comprehended the conversation when he asked, “Does mom know about this!”
