If You Are Preaching Today

Or if you have transferred the Name of Jesus to the following Sunday, consider this from an interesting but garbled essay on names by David Mamet:

Not only are there no atheists in foxholes, there are, I believe, no atheists anywhere. We just call our gods by different names. Indeed, psychotherapy may be nothing more than the attempt to find those names, and so challenge their power.

Obviously, Luther got there first in the Large Catechism.  But the observation is still worthwhile.
