Time to let go?


There’s not much future for CRT televisions, as evidenced by this sight on the curb this morning as I drove by. And it’s not even so much that the television was put on the curb. What really struck me is that I doubt anyone will want it enough to pick it up.

Which was clearly the owner’s intention. They left the remote on top of the tv!

Since I welcome insight from just about anywhere, and since I am caught up in prayer and concern for The United Methodist Church and #GC2019, I saw this tv with remote, sitting on a curb, as a metaphor.

I just wish I knew exactly what it was a metaphor for.

Once upon a time this kind of television was worth something. Now, you literally can’t give it away by leaving it on the curb.
