Charley Reeb: Why Christianity?

John 1:1-9,14

25th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

November 11, 2018

The Rev. Dr. Charles Reeb (UMC)

Charley Reeb: Lose the Cape

Mark 12:28-34

24th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

The Rev. Dr. Charles Reeb (UMC)

 

When I was in college, I went to a pool party. I remember it being pretty tame by college standards. The parents were home! However, the dad of the house was a lot of fun. We joked around, laughed and carried on. Later in the evening, we were sitting by the pool and the father asked me what my major was. I told him it was religion. He laughed and said, "Yeah, right." I said, "No, I'm serious, it is religion." He asked, "Why religion?" I told him I was going to be a preacher. He said, "A what? You don't seem like any preacher I know (I took it as a compliment). You laugh and joke and have fun. You seem normal." Before I left the party, he said something to me I will never forget, "I'm in my 50s and you are the first Christian I've ever met that I actually enjoy being around."
