Video Show and Tell: The Parable of the Demonic Feline

My husband delivered an incredible sermon this Sunday at a church in Santa Fe called The Celebration. For several years now, he has been writing and delivering lay sermons at either the Unitarian Universalist church in Santa Fe or in the one in Los Alamos to which we belong, but this is the first time he has spoken outside a UU group. A woman who heard his his last sermon in Santa Fe invited him to come and speak and The Celebration, and so he wrote for them The Parable of the Demonic Feline, which I think is the finest piece of writing he has ever done.

My husband is a brilliant speaker, and I promise that this is worth watching. It shouldn't really matter very much what your religious beliefs are–or aren't–in terms of your appreciation because it isn't about religion at all. He is just talking about being human and what he learned about about the state of being human from the cat who wouldn't stop yowling like a demon from Hell.


  1. Bless his heart. What a great sermon. Thanks for sharing him with us!

  2. Wow - that was great and so inspiring!
    I think your cat has Pavlovian tendencies.
    Soooo, someone else shares a house with someone who leaves lids off...

  3. A wise message well-delivered. Glad I took the time to watch/listen. Thanks.
