This is one of my favorite scenes in all of moviedom. It’s silliness is beyond measure and that is what I love. Its classic, silly, and ridiculous all at the same time. It brilliant. But its also deep. It might not seem that way upon the first viewing, but I think there is something here that comes to bear on the human experience. We have all had or will have tough bridges over huge scary chasms that we must cross on life’s Journey. Sometimes we face those bridges with uncommon courage and valor. Other times fear overwhelms us and we never make it across. In fact fear grips us so tightly that at times we would rather die than make it across that bridge. We have all been standing at the edge of the bridge and had to make a choice. Move forward…or turn around and go back. What bridge has God asked you to cross today? How have you responded?
If you want to hear more about bridge crossing, come to the C&MA church in Morgantown this Sunday at 6pm.

As you begin your new school year, meditate on these verses from Luke 1:78-79:
“Through the heartfelt mercies of our God,
God’s Sunrise will break in upon us,
Shining on those in the darkness,
those sitting in the shadow of death,
Then showing us the way, one foot at a time,
down the path of peace.” (The Message)
