Today we continue our August series on “God and Dr. Seuss”. I’ll consider
a book Dr. Seuss wrote titled: “Oh, the Places You’ll Go”. It’s a cute poem that tells children they have potential, they have feet in their shoes that
enable them to go places and brains in their heads and they “know what they know”. As time goes on, they’ll be able to decide what to do with their lives. They will need some guidance, but they can figure out a lot of it all on their own. I got a little uncomfortable when I first read the poem. What makes a person proud? I’m reminded of the businessmen in James 4:13-16 who don’t seem to be boastful and proud to me… and yet God says they were. So, I’ll talk today about “Oh, the Places You’ll Go”
This week’s Contemporary service left the building, where it became the centerpiece of our community-oriented “Barbecue, Backpacks and Blessings” weekend in the park event!
