that Jesus loved flowers is an important doctrine

Sometimes a little frivolity is in order. I get nasty emails every day from people who lack a sense of humor. Or, they don’t have the same sense of humor as I do. Which is the same thing. Isn’t it? I’m still getting hate mail over my cartoon “Rob Bell Marries David Hayward”.

Anyway, this idea popped into my head and fell out of my hands.

You’re the victims of this terrible assault on your theology.

    Agreed on humor. People without humor also tend to be close minded, and with that affliction, are just about always at the ready to disagree with those of us who have it. I believe it to be a significant factor in growth of our lives, including spiritual growth. The : “we have always did it the same way”gets in the way of advancement and debate is outside their area of discussion. They love to narrow mindedly argue that they are right. This is my judgement for today !

    I love your stuff David, even the stuff that challenges me to the core and brings up my ‘religious’ “You can’t say that” lines in my head …. actually that’s the best stuff because it pushes me to give up so much of that way of thinking!!

    “Consider the lilies of the field…” but also consider that “Lo, how a carnation e’er blooming” just doesn’t quite make it… :-)

    I’ve always thought that getting hate mail from “christians” means that you are doing something right.

    Keep on keeping on.
