Devotional Thought from Pastor Will
I grew up in a church with pastors who never wore their collar. For those unfamiliar with a pastor’s collar shirt, traditionally it is a black dress shirt with a white rectangular insert at the throat. (Now days you can find collar shirts in many colors.) Why the white on the throat? Great question! The black shirt signifies that pastors are sinners, but the white insert signifies that Jesus uses our voice box to be the Means of Grace and to give forgiveness. Did you know that? Most members of LCMS congregations don’t know that. That being the case, why do we still wear this stuff if no one understands its significance?

MOVIE OF THE WEEK:
Here’s how it works. Most of these movies will be available “on demand” through a movie service on your TV, like Netflix or Hulu. The link above provides you with questions to think through as you and your family watch the movie and then discuss it afterwards. At the end of the questions you can read my reflections about where I saw the light of Jesus in the movie. (These movies might be available at your local library as well, but with many of the libraries closed right now, you would have to save the discussion questions until you get the movie.)
Finding Jesus' Light in the Media
So, the problem with reviewing movies is I can’t control all of the content. And since I am trying to hit a wide variety of audiences it means not all the content of every movie will be appropriate. Just note that there are a few catheter jokes in this one.
This story is about a wealthy guy who was saved despite his DNR order (Do Not Resuscitate). Now he is a quadriplegic and needs a full-time caregiver. Phillip, the wealthy quadriplegic, hires Dell, an ex-convict, to be that for him. Yvonne is Phillip’s assistant, and she doesn’t like it one bit.
