Winning the Lottery

Summary of May 26, 2013

Dear Folks -


The "life talk" I offered in Ordinary Life this week was based on the very difficult teaching of Jesus that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich person to live in the "realm of God." That is to say, if we put our time and and energy into defending and protecting, we can't hear the good news of freedom and love.


Included in this talk is reference to research done that shows how the words we have used over the past fifty years reflect that our culture is growing more individualistic and less moral. Warren Buffet’s "ovarian lottery" theory is also included. The talk ends with one of my favorite stories from Judaism about how the love two brothers had for each other created Sacred Space.


That's a brief summary of the talk I offered in Ordinary Life this week. The full text I spoke can be found by clicking the link below. . As is sometimes the case, the audio version has some significant additions. You can find links to the audio and the presentation slides below as well.


Much love,


Bill Kerley
