He gave the best sermons in 50 years of church attending –
economy – length and cost – free – no charge.
He could have asked $5 ….
when five dollars was fee to a movie,
less than three or four minutes
often as little as 90 seconds,
bullet, but not pointed,
the congregation leaning to attention.
“ Today’s Gospel ” – altruism
putting others before self
A task –
when asked for money
instead of passing 5, 10, 20, even 100 dollars
decide an amount,
calculate how many minutes or hours required to earn,
thinking not of the dollar quantum
but the time – your time,
“ one is charity. The other, love.”
