Holy Week 2019
What's not to love about the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series -- the marriage of man and machine, the sheer human drama, the connections to the Revised Common Lectionary:
NASCAR drivers are most often photographed on the track itself, with the pedal to the metal, as it were. Organists, likewise, are photographed with the pedals down to . . . whatever it is they hit down there.
But it is the pit crew and the organ technicians who do the real work behind the scenes. They make the driving possible. They make the music happen.
Matt Kenseth attributed his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win to the outstanding work done by his colleagues in the pit.
“'We had excellent pit stops,' said Kenseth" as reported by the New York Times.
"Stop" Note: Both organists and stock car drivers have to contend with "stop" terminology being coöpted by the populace: "pulling out all the stops" & "pit stops".
Jesus, this past Sunday, is also a clear winner. He is transfigured, with clothes so white not even the sponsor of the Tide Ride (of blesséd memory) could take credit. Marcos Ambrose and the Clorox crew had nothing to do with it (he finished 22nd Sunday).
But this is not a solo performance by Jesus. He has his "pit crew" back-up singers: Moses and Elijah.
The disciples want to build houses for everyone (maybe using #17-approved DeWalt tools?), but they're way off the pace.
"This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!"
