Scripture Reading: The Parable of the Ten Virgins
What kind of emotion does this picture evoke for you? “Fear,” of course. If you can’t see, it’s a scene from The Wizard of Oz, the classic scene in the witch’s lair where Dorothy is trapped and the hourglass is running out. What other emotions or thoughts or feelings does it evoke for you? “Panic,” so not just fear but a sense of panic. Anything else? “Time is running out.” That was the answer I was looking for, Wayne you get the prize. I remember watching The Wizard of Oz as a child and I remember the feeling of panic and anxiety. the feeling of fear. This scene is so symbolic in many ways because not only is time running out for sweet, good little Dorothy, but it also means that Evil’s going to win if things go the way the Wicked Witch of the West thinks they will go.
