Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip-that started from this tropic port aboard this tiny ship. The jingle would end with….The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle with Gilligan, the skipper too, a millionaire, and his wife. A movie star, the Professor and Mary Ann, here on Gilligan’s Isle.
As much as we enjoyed laughing at the silly plots of Gilligan's Island, there really isn’t anything funny about life-threatening storms on the ocean or being shipwrecked. It goes without saying that storms and shipwrecks are fun to watch… as long as they never happen to us! There is more than one kind of shipwreck however and the other kind is one I believe all of us will face at least once in our life, if not more. It's the shipwreck of our soul. Triggered by at least one traumatic event, we find our souls stuck and isolated, unable to move forward or backward in life. With that in mind, I want to take a few Sundays to talk about shipwrecks from the 27th chapter of Acts.
