If you don’t have dreams, you’re a ‘dead man walking’.
Coming back from a parish mission in Oelwein and Fairbank, Iowa, I passed through Dyersville, Iowa. As you may know that is where the movie “Field of Dreams” was filmed.
It is an amazing piece of property and even more, thought- provoking. If you don’t have dreams, you’re a ‘dead man walking’.
Jesus was such a dreamer. He wanted a world that His Father would be proud of: a world of peace, justice and love for everyone. This was His dream. He talked about it, preached of it and invited people like you and me to make the dream come true. He even died for it.
This Holy week we are reminded of how important that dream was. We can celebrate the Passion story, the Last Supper, and the Crucifixion that made the Dream Possible.
Make your church a great place this Holy Week to celebrate wonderful dreams: His, Yours and Mine.
