Exit 151 GSP Montclair Jesus Part 2

While contemplating the healing power of Jesus, I logged on my computer and what do you know? There’s a website: One click on Jesus and instead of being healed, I was directed to provide a monetary donation. Huh?

Since it was an unseasonably beautiful February day I got up from my computer and I took a stroll over to Church Street in Montclair, walked by Christ Church and straight into Urban Outfitters. What do you know? I found the healing power of Jesus in adhesive bandages, yes indeed: the"Jesus Band-Aid"was for sale: $6.00 for a box of 15 sterile strips. Unlike the website, at least this was practical concept.

You know I just had to buy a box. And what do you know? It even came with a mini-healing Jesus - much better than anything I’ve ever got in a Cracker Jack box, by far!

So you know I did every thing to try to induce some minor bleeding just to have an excuse to use one of those strips, sick as I am. The bandage was even cooler than I envisioned. See:

But hey, Jesus didn’t need bandages with his picture on them:

And behold, a woman who had suffered from a flow of blood for twelve years came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment; For she kept saying to herself, If I only touch His garment, I shall be restored to health. Jesus turned around and, seeing her, He said, Take courage, daughter! Your faith has made you well. And at once the woman was restored to health. Matthew 9

You did it again...another *mouth-hanging-open-in-shock* reaction! Really? A mini "healing Jesus" in the bandaid box? Really? Who comes UP with this?

Still, the bandaids are pretty cool...and I guess I'd rather put a Jesus bandaid on a child's booboo than a SpongeBob one!

Yeah, I'd go for Jesus over SpongeBob any day! Sadly, most children in the US probably know SpongeBob and not Jesus.

Not to complicate matters further, but at Christmas, my city actually has a tree, manger scene and yes, there's SpongeBob - paid with my tax dollars right next to the Wisemen!

I'd say "you're kidding" except I know you're not. What in the world does Spongebob have to do with Christmas and a Nativity scene?? Good grief...

Those bandaids are wickedly cool. Do you know where I can get some in Oklahoma? I will be the Associate Pastor on the block with them. Actualy that could make a great illustated sermon.
