Just a Thought.......


Rev.DaveFischer Rev.DaveFischer My wife and I were watching a stand-up comedy routine the other evening. As usual, he was very funny.

Late in his presentation, he talked of making an encouragement trip to our troops in Iraq. When he had finished his act, two MPs arrived with an announcement. “Sgt. Pepper wants to see you.” With that, they marched him, in lockstep, to the waiting soldier.

They came to a stop next to a man in a wheelchair who was missing both legs and blind from the bomb which had taken them. The Sergeant saluted him and said, “me and my guys want to thank you for coming all the way over here to entertain us.”

The comedian was stunned. “Here was someone who had actually sacrificed himself and he was thanking me?”

I cried. Then, I smiled. Leave it to God to put a sermon in the midst of a comedy show.

Thank you, Sgt. Pepper, and your men, and all who are like you in making this the greatest nation on God’s green earth.

Rev. David Fischer is interim Minister at First Christian Church in Lexington
