I’m not particularly fond of the methods of street preachers -I guess I’m a little bit biased against crazed guys shouting at me telling me I’m destined for hell and they don’t even know me. One of these guys placed a plaster Jesus in a make-shift shrine on Jackson Street.
A little background on this statue: the preacher found it in a dumpster and it is in disrepair - well, of course it is, if someone is trashing a plaster Jesus -
A little background on the preacher: unemployed and partially blind.
Next thing you know, preacher man claims Jesus winked at him! Now Jesus would wink at a partially bind street preacher to convey what exactly?
How you doin’?
Thanks for taking me out of the trash, I owe you one.
Well done my good and faithful servant.
Hey, nice duds, dude.
A winking Jesus is quite a news story and all the New York press crossed the Hudson to cover the event…..Some claimed it was a miracle, a sign from God …..
A 14 year old girl put things in proper perspective, “It’s just a sculpture. I think somebody just scraped its eyelid off.”
We’re always looking for signs and wonders.
Luke 2: “This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
