Invitation to the Game by David Sable————

It is America’s Sunday-the day that millions gather to watch the Superbowl. From militant Pittsburgh fan Joe to football pacifist Esther and pom-pom baring airhead Janelle Sterns floating somewhere in between, track two characters as they make their way through this special day responding unknowingly to the invitation to the game.

David B. Sable’s profound story hones characters into a “sharply descriptive allegory to depict our post-Church culture. His archetypical way of creating characters is very effective in presenting a profound picture of who we are as modern American Christians. . . from Joe to Rev Jackson to Janelle and Daniel and all of them, I love every one, and I do see a part of myself in every one of them.”

“And the sports announcers–you’ve must have spent hours listening to them in preparation for this. You nailed their lingo! And their don’t-stop-analyzing-schmooze-talk. So evocative and colorful, yet repetitive and cliche at the same time.”

“Execute!” Ha!

Mister Reynolds Makes His Case by David Sable————

Darryl Reynolds, somewhat intoxicated, has a point. In times of vulnerability and need, the God people unquestionably worship was simply a no-show. Worse, this God becomes the impetus and justification for manipulation and abuse. A chance meeting in a bar with Mr. Downing gives Darryl an opportunity of a lifetime – to show the world once and for all the grand deception and definitively make his case.

David Sable’s most thoughtful work to date explores the ever-posed dilemma after every human disaster: Where was God? Far from the an intellectual debate of two talking heads, this story brings forth the pathos and emotions set forth when grappling with the nature of evil, abuse, love and ultimate isolation.

A Man's Got to Believe in Something by David Sable

————

A stranger, an executive type, walks into a barber shop. A Southern barber makes conversation and cuts the man’s hair. Who is the real person in the story? And who is the one who still can’t seem to find the person reflected in the barber shop mirror?

A Man’s Got to Believe Something is a fictional study of belief and authenticity with characters that are horrific because they are real. One seeks to speak the truth only to be tripped up by his own sophisticated systems of denial. Another lives in deception and somehow has to find a way out.

Author Notes

A while back, my barber was out of town so I took a substitute. Our conversation and some events was similar (though not exact) to the details in the story. When I left, I had a deep sense that there was a story here some place. This rest is this work of fiction.

Reverend Bob's Sermon

————

A pastor of an unresponsive church with the best of his life behind him and little to show for it, Reverend Bob spends his week preparing yet another sermon that will not be heard. Does a life of failed good intentions necessitate a sentence of isolation and futility?

When Reverend Bob took the pulpit of Redeemer Chapel, he spoke for twenty minutes to the walls. Herein, is an apt metaphor of one who lives a life of good intention but is stuck in a silent world where even the most basic relations do not seem to be listening. How does this narrative change? Or is one destined to another week of meaningless mediocrity?
