What They Got that I Ain’t Got?

Staff_McDermott, TomWhat makes a king out of a slave? Courage.

What makes a flag on the mast to wave? Courage.

What makes the elephant charge his tusk, in the misty mist

and the musty must? Courage.

What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage.

What makes the Sphinx the 7th Wonder? Courage.

What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage.

What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in apricot?

Whatta they got that I ain’t got? Courage!

And, as all who’ve ever watched or read the story of Oz know, he and a small band of friends did find a way to discover not only courage, but heart, brilliance, and a way home!

The word Wisdom comes from the root words “discern” and “way.” Wisdom is finding a way through life, through life’s obstacles, questions, and challenges.

This Sunday, Rev. Linda McDermott brings a message of Crazy Wisdom — discovering the courage to be who we are.


This Sunday in nine:thirty-nine and eleven:eleven celebration,

Crazy Wisdom

“the way of courage”

Rev. Linda McDermott


with gifts of story, humor, the Revolution Band and the music of Andra Day,

Peter Mayer, and the Cowardly Lion!


Hope to see you then!
