Jesus saves...but Gretzky gets the rebound and scores!



This is what it looks like when you are the goalie. But you really don't focus on those black bars, even though they are right in front of your eyes. Your mind tunes them out and all you see is the skater and the puck.

As for Jesus as goalie, I'm not so sure Gretzky could score if Jesus was in net but I am pretty sure Jesus has a higher save percentage than I do. In the meantime, I've been paying some attention to Jay Bakker and his Revolution church. You can check out video clips on youTube by searching One Punk Under God.

The core principle at Revolution seems to be grace as demonstrated on their stickers: "As Christians, we're sorry for being self-righteous judgmental bastards."

It's a next level jump.

You've gotta love a Christian with a great sense of humor! I'll bet Jesus was funny and a great goalie.

I like this quote I found on churchmarketingsucks.com

"We're a sinful and broken people, but half the time we can't admit it. We put on an air of perfection, forgetting that in our brokenness we are complete. The church is for the broken, not the perfect."

I always thought I was a sucky Christian, and now I think, somehow, that makes me a good Christian, if that makes any sense at all.

Honesty is very refreshing, isn't it?

I like that quote about brokenness.

Funny, I was walking by a Christian bookstore in an upscale suburb the other day, and I got to wondering what God thinks of all the commercialism that surrounds religion and the who Christian "industry" as a whole. You would never find that sort of sticker at a Christian bookstore..unfortunately. I just wish more people would be real.
