Read so they want to watch

Walt Disney World Main Street at Halloween
Kinda scary to think you should be able to convey the passion of iconic Biblical figures.

Most people are conditioned to follow along in the missal while the Lector reads.

Why?

Shouldn’t the focus be on Saint Paul or Jeremiah?

Shouldn’t the reader be speaking in a way the requires no textbook?

Why not just ask everyone to (silently) read the scripture to themselves?

Try to imagine the time, place, audience, and context in which the original person said those things.

Missing Sunday Mass (again)

Bob Iger time magazine
Stumbled upon this article yesterday on LinkedIn. We’ve earned another amazing business award.

 

Missing Sunday Mass (again).

Catching a Lyft in an hour for Orlando International Airport.

Heading north (Charlotte) and then west (Littel Rock).

Delivering a Disney Keynote Speech tomorrow morning.

So yeah, preaching the Gospel according to Walt.

Finding solace knowing every step we take is “church”.

It matters little to walk to do the preaching if not the walking is the preaching. – unknown

Please forgive me for missing so many Sunday morning Masses

Glacier National Park summit
Glacier National Park is quite a Church house of worship.

 

Please forgive me for missing so many Sunday morning Masses.

Travel has influenced our absence.

Start every morning with your cleanest spirit.

Mass is only a once-a-week commitment.

Figure it out jeff.

Will your death be the third most magnificent day in your life?

Family memories
Jane and Larry Brockman’s wedding day, 1970. They moved to Orlando from California in 1984 and began serving at Holy Family Orlando Catholic Church.

 

Family memories
Jane and Larry Brockman’s family, mid-late 1970’s. They had five children, and as of yesterday, 13 grandchildren.

 

Family memories
Jane Brockman’s life. Highlights from the first half of her 70 years.

 

Family memories
Jane Brockman’s life remembered- highlights from the second half of Jane’s 70 years.

 

Will your death be the third most magnificent day in your life?

Depends entirely on your beliefs.

Whatever you believe, my wish for you is that you believe like you mean it.

Yesterday was Jane’s funeral at Holy Family.

Larry, Jane’s husband and one of our Deacons, gave a wonderful tribute to Jane. Jane’s middle daughter, Katie, did the same.

It was beautiful.

Glorious even.

It doesn’t feel like Sunday

Disney Customer Service Keynote Speakers
Fresh off the eight-day Disney Cruise yesterday at 9am. Note the year? It was 2017 when i wrote this post.

 

It doesn’t feel like Sunday.

Christmas Eve.

Today.

Sunday.

We have one full day at home in the middle of a 16-day stretch away from home.

If we go to Mass today, it will not be our normal 8:45am.
