The Lesson of Enoch’s Ending

I’m about two-thirds of the way through the rough draft of my chapel talk for next week (which I hope to record tomorrow).  We’ve spent the last two weeks talking about friendship with God.  I’ve done a little more personal-anecdote sharing than usual, which has been interesting for me.  It’s also a topic that I’ve been thinking about for a long time.  If we were back on campus (and if the scene didn’t cut off before the really good stuff), I’d definitely show this clip from a recent episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.  It involves the death of Enoch the chronal android from episode nine, “As I Always Have Been.”  It’s a great picture of loneliness and friendship in the context of life’s big picture.

As it stands right now, it’s the most somber chapel talk I’ve given in my almost-four years of working with chapel.  So it’s definitely going to need some revisions.  I’m grateful for the opportunity to sleep on it, too.
