- "Sister Mary Clarence leads them in their first song in worship. The Reverend Mother chastises her for "Boogie Woogie" in church. The priest intervenes and commends the Reverend Mother for "her" innovative efforts to revitalize the parish. Preaching Themes: incarnation, that Jesus came to be with us as one of us. St. Paul "becoming all things to all people in order that some might be saved." The challenge of the church becoming culturally relevant in order to reach the world, not changing the message but adapting the method."
- Jonah's prayer in the belly of the big fish has the feel of a patchwork quilt prayer, made up of quotes from various psalms. It reveals the value of living with scripture whereby, like our learning to talk as children by listening to our parents, learning to pray flows from listening to the words of the Word. In the movie, "Sister Act," Whoopie Goldberg's character, a Reno show girl in witness protection, hiding in an inner city convent, prays out loud (for the first time?) over a meal with a similar patchwork, those zanily more limited scripturally, effort.
