Sermon Notes from March 3rd, 2019

“I watched them tearing a building down, 
A gang of men in a busy town. 
With a ho-heave-ho and a lusty yell,  
They swung a beam, and the side wall fell. 
I asked the foreman: "Are these skilled-- 
And the men you'd hire if you had to build?" 
He gave me a laugh and said: "No, indeed! 
Just common labor is all I need. 
I can wreck in a day or two 
What builders have taken a year to do." 
And I thought to myself as I went my way, 
Which of these roles have I tried to play? 
Am I a builder who works with care 
Measuring life by a rule and square? 
Am I shaping my deeds to a well made Plan, 
Patiently doing the best I can? 
Or am I a wrecker, who walks the town 
Content with the labor of tearing down?”
