Fellowship of Saints and Sinners

 Yes, I haven’t forgotten.  After a brief hiatus we’re continuing our exploration of the weird  things Jesus said.  And, there are plenty of them.  We’ve only scraped the surface in our big  dig.

Thus far we’ve asked the questions that we couldn’t ask in church, like, “Was Jesus racist?” or “Was Jesus crazy?”  We’ve discovered Jesus’ potential as a Renaissance Man and poked holes in  prevailing stereotypes about his manhood.  Jesus, contrary to popular opinion, wasn’t “macho.” Just really cut with great abs and still in touch with his sensitive side.  Manly but  comfortable having deep conversations with women.  A rare combination.  (What can I say?  I’m in love.)

Tomorrow we’ll look at another weird saying: “For everyone will be salted with fire.  Salt is  good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it?  Have salt in yourselves, and be at  peace with one another.”  Stay tuned!

If you can put up with the cheesy voice-over at the beginning, this is one artist’s worshipful depiction of Jesus, and it’s otherwise quite moving:  YouTube Preview Image
