Amos Disasa: Is, Was, Is to Come

Revelation 1:4-8

2nd Sunday of Easter - Year C

September 03, 2017

The Rev. Amos Disasa (PCUSA)

 

I have some friends that claim to not dream. I have other friends that keep a journal beside their beds so that they can record their dreams as soon as they wake up. I don't record my dreams in a journal because, well, someone might find that journal and read it. Most of my dreams are harmless, mundane variations of my real life. For instance, one time I had a dream in which I only wore red clothes. Hat, shirt, belt, pants, socks, shoes, everything was red. I was adamant in that dream about the particular shade of red I wore, and that red could only be found at one store. And the dream consisted of me annoying a bunch of people with this idiosyncrasy, and by the end of the dream, I lost all my friends. Could there be some truth buried deep within my unconscious regarding the color red?

Einstein's Dreams is a piece of fiction based in part on the life of Albert Einstein. The story goes something like this: The year is 1905, and Einstein is working in a patent office in Berne, Switzerland. He is a young man, who in his spare time is toiling over the theory of relativity, the theory of how time works and orders our world. That's what most of us do for a hobby, I'm sure. Anyway, as he toils, Einstein begins to have a series of dreams, each one a different way that time might flow. There are thirty dreams in all, each one a radically different way of looking at the world we know.

Who does he think he is?

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this episode of Be Still and Know, The Rev. John R Gunn instructs the youth not to "listen to that cynical advice which would bottle up your enthusiasm, which would puncture your air castle. Think of the Tom Dooleys, the Alexander Graham Bells, the Charles Lindberghs who dreamed and dared to make their dreams come true."
