Pentecost 9 :: Laser Tag?


Matthew 14.22-33

Have you ever played with a cat using a laser light pen? Laser pens emit a colored point of light [usually red] over long distances. People who make Power-Point presentations often use these to highlight important elements in the projected image. Anyway, if you’ve ever used a laser light pen to play with a cat you know how much fun it can be. The cat will attack and stomp on and run to and grab at that point of light as you wave the light back and forth across a wall. Nothing else matters to the cat. The pursuit of the light is all there is. No obstacle will deter the animal from its lofty goal of capture. Such determination by the cat to “catch” that little point of light can provide hours of delightful entertainment [okay, maybe not “hours,” but a long time nevertheless!]!
