While I was in the supermarket the other day, someone placed a religious flyer beneath my windshield wiper. I didn't notice it until I was buckled up and ready to go, so I took my chances and pulled out.
As I drove home, the flyer flapped away, but stayed affixed to the car as I suspected it would. It reminded me of this tongue-in-cheek documentary/reality show wherein the host hung out with "alternative" individuals. I don't remember much about it. But on one show, he traveled along with a Ministry that delivered the word by driving around in a van that had religious slogans painted on its side. There may have been a loudspeaker as well. I'm not sure.
"So by driving around like this we're actually ministering?" asked the TV host.
"That's right," his guest replied. "We're delivering the Word right now."
So I've decided to keep the Jesus flyer on the Mini Cooper for a while. Will it fly off one day? What does it mean if someone removes it? If I let it get all tattered and rain-soaked, is that some sort of desecration? Am I subtly ministering by traveling along with this message? Maybe I'd better read it and make sure I'm not spreading some evil code hidden between the lines.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
