overheard…

when nicholas kristoff of that dirty, liberal, communist organ otherwise known at the new york times was asked “what are some ways that christians in america can encourage the growth of christianity in china?” he responded in part by suggesting that:

“Christians shouldn't only speak up on behalf of Christians who are tortured. Falun Gong is bearing the biggest brunt of religious repression in China. It behooves the American evangelical community to speak up when Falun Gong believers are tortured or their children taken away.”

i thought this response was brilliant insofar as it both challenges christians to effectively incarnate the love of Christ and provides an intriguing road forward for the christian mission throughout the world. concerning the latter, i think that the members of falun gong would find christian advocacy much more persuasive than an effective evangecube presentation.

what really pleases me is that you put up a link to the evegecube website, and that i clicked on it. my life is richer. i was under the impression that the evengecube was a singular entity . . . but i was wrong. It's actually a brandname. E-cube keychain, evange-tracks, evange-posters, evange-tabs, the BIG CUBE, and trax-packs rule. It looks like one stop christmas shopping for me this year!

i know, i know. i miss my complete set of evangecubes so much. i really enjoyed whipping my keychain evangecube out of my pocket and terrorizing non-christian friends. and o how i enjoyed writing creative new scripts for each part of the presentation.

there but for my conscience...

wait, terrorizing NON-christian friends... the first time I met you, you whipped that cube out. In fact, I think I got it presented to me in all 3 sizes to make sure my christianity is secure. You're lucky I came back to visit...

becky, becky, becky...i didn't whip out the cube for your benefit. i was trying to convert your non-christian, sinfully co-habitating friend.

all i did for you that trip was complete the heavy lifting that was required for you to fulfill your little boyfriend fantasy.

and...you're welcome.

the evangicube aside, i just wanted to say thanks for posting this. my thoughts have drifted back to this quote on several occasions and as far as i can figure it's right on. we so only see in part.
