There Goes Jesus

We are involved in cleaning out an old shed over our storm cellar. It has treasurers galore. The young man helping us has been given certain guidelines for what to keep for me to sell and what goes in the dumpster. Yesterday I was passing the dumpster on a mission of my own and noticed a cardboard cut-out of The Last Supper. I kept walking but pondered what I should do. Should a picture of Jesus be thrown in the trash? It was my plan to go back and get the picture but I got busy with other things. This morning I looked out to see the trash haulers leaving our dumpster and I suddenly remembered Jesus.

Today our country is in turmoil about flag burning, the Ten Commandment, and Koran destruction. How are we supposed to treat religious symbols? I realized the sanitation department can take my picture of Jesus but there is no way they can take away my faith.

This has to be good sermon material for someone.
