Today’s service is a throwback to a time where men were men and women liked them that way. Today’s subject is none other than the immortal Steve McQueen. (Okay, he’s dead, but the idea of Steve McQueen is immortal.)
Terence Steven “Steve” McQueen (March 24, 1930 – November 7, 1980) was an American actor. Called “The King of Cool”, his “anti-hero” persona, developed at the height of the counterculture of the 1960s, made him a top box-office draw of the 1960s and 1970s. McQueen received an Academy Award nomination for his role in The Sand Pebbles. His other popular films include The Cincinnati Kid, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, The Getaway, and Papillon, as well as the all-star ensemble films The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, and The Towering Inferno. In 1974, he became the highest-paid movie star in the world, although he did not act in films again for four years.
McQueen was in a slew of fantastic films, but Bullitt will always be my favorite.

This guy oozed cool while most regular men oozed sweat and shame.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s sermon. You may now go in peace.
