Speeches that Motivate

Okay, confession time, I LOVE MOVIES! I don't like movies, I love them. I also love a good sermon, speech or presentation. There are often moments in movies when the situation is dire, the circumstances are overwhelming, and there is little hope. At that moment the hero stands up before the faithful and urges them to believe the unbelievable, to reach beyond themselves and do the impossible.

It occurs to me that every Sunday those of us who open the Word of God each week attempt to do the same. We strive to hear the the voice of God in our hearts and share it with the faithful. To motivate them to believe the unbelievable, to reach beyond themselves and do the impossible. Perhaps if we do the preparation and bring the passion that these heroes do we can raise the bar on our preparation. I remain:

Consumed by the Call,
Marty
