Transcript of WALK WORTHY

Slide 1

1

"The Ministry of Silly Walks" is a sketch from the Monty Python comedy troupe's television show Monty Python's Flying Circus, episode 14, which is entitled "Face the Press". The episode first aired in 1970. A shortened version of the sketch was performed for Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl. This sketch involves John Cleese as a bowler hatted civil servant in a fictitious British government ministry responsible for developing Silly Walks through grants. Cleese, throughout the sketch, walks in a variety of silly ways (including one that briefly imitates the scissor gait of spastic diplegia), and it is these various silly walks, more than the dialogue, that has earned the sketch its popularity. 2 WALK WORTHYAs a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

If my friends were asked who is at the center of my life?, what would they say about me?Does my life exhibit the qualities that reflect that worthiness?-Do I use others to build up myself?-Can I control my emotions and desires?-Do I genuinely care for what is best for the people around me?-Are my words and attitudes divisive?

I will intentionally put into practice humility, gentleness, love, and unity.

I am sinful, selfish, and self-entered. Unworthy. But Gods grace through Christ gives me an identity as His child and heir. His Spirit gives me power to live equal to this high calling.I am sinful, selfish, and self-entered. Unworthy. But Gods grace through Christ gives me an identity as His child and heir.
