Light, Darkness, and Advent

For last Sunday's sermon I developed an illustration that ran through the entire sermon based on the CSI television series (there are three of them). I began with the Homiletics treatment for August 9, 2009 and worked it into the entire sermon. The key to the illustration is the fact that each of the CSI programs are shot through colored lens. Las Vegas uses a blue filter, Miami uses a yellow filter, and New York uses a black filter.

The Homiletics material was based on an article by Ron Rosenbaum in the New York Observer, 1/21/07 -

With Christ we don't need light-altering lens. We can look at life unfiltered because of what Christ has done for us and His promises to us for the future.
