They both looked down at the rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed.
He was in a body cast and traction with IV’s and monitors running in and out of him. He was in bad shape.
The rabbi looks up and says, “Looking back on it, circumcision may not have been the best way to start.”
I got my contributing editor’s copies of the new Wittenburg Door today. Lots of good stuff, including an interview with Eugene “The Message” Peterson. Unfortunately, I not only don’t have any stuff in this issue I don’t really have anything on the drawing board last night. I tried to pitch an interview back in February but never heard anything back. I’ve re-sent that request in case there was an e-mail problem. (I’m relatively sure I sent an e-mail, but I can’t find a copy in my “sent mail” folder, so maybe I didn’t, or closed the window instead of sending, or some other such foolishness. And even if I sent it, that doesn’t guarantee that the magazine received it.)
I am happy to say that this bit of satire, from The Onion, is not representative of the mission groups I’ve been involved with, and (unlike The Onion’s usually-fine work, even when directed against the church) it’s probably too heavy-handed to be good satire. Then again, I have talked to a few Christians who seem to think that evangelism is always Job One, and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs goes out the window.
The fact that so many people continue to stumble across my previous postings (this one, this one and this one) about Grady Nutt seems to indicate that there’s not a lot about Grady on the web, or else I wouldn’t be turning up on the search engines. That’s why it’s so great that Rich Diesslin has a Grady Nutt tribute page.
The Dennis Swanberg show tonight at First Baptist Church was a real hoot, full of genuine belly laughs and good clean fun.
I’d been hoping Swanberg would do his dead-solid-perfect Billy Graham impression; I didn’t know him well enough to know if that was one of his trademarks or not. It is, and he not only did it he told a hilarious story about what happened when he got the chance to perform for Billy Graham and his staff.
A nice evening.
(Note to the extremely picky: I’m going to put this post in my “Wittenburg Door” category even though it has nothing to do with the Door, just because it relates to religious humor.)
Dave Walker is a terrrific cartoonist who works with Christian themes. He’s launched a new site, The Cartoon Church, to showcase his work. You can view it online or purchase it for use in your own church publications. (Prices are in pounds UK, so check the exchange rate first.) There’s also a blog associated with the site. Check it out, won’t you?
