Living the Story #7, Lent 2011

"The men of Nin'eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here." Luke 11:32

When I was a kid, I remember I somehow got my hands on a copy of "The Wittenburg Door" which was a Christian satire magazine. There was a comic in there that I looked for today but couldn't find. I'll just describe it...

  • Panel one: First century Christians are huddled together getting ready to face hungry lions in the colloseum and they are praying together something like, "Lord, give us strength to glorify your name through our death!"
  • Panel two: Cold War era Christians in the eastern block are hiding from soldiers and praying together as well for strength to face their oppressors.
  • Panel three: An American Christian sits in his car in the driveway with a concerned look on his face and he prays, "Lord, the Audi's been running a little rough lately..."
