Yep, God had a busy week. He worked his strange and mysterious plan on some of his favorite Christian followers..
- First, we find out one of His beloved … a loyal God-fearing Sunday school teacher, a woman no less, Melissa Huckaby … was arrested for sexually molesting and killing an eight year old neighborhood child in California. She was doin’ the Lord’s work no doubt. I’m sure the faithful at her church will pray for her, albeit, I can’t imagine why.
- Then, in New Hampshire, on Easter Sunday, the 150 year old Christian Conference Center and “compound” caught fire and was destroyed. Four people hurt as fifty Christian buildings burned to the ground. "It was a tremendous blessing," said Russ Sample, a volunteer staff member at the conference center. "Had this happened eight weeks later [during the busier summer season], all these buildings could have been full."
(I don’t suppose NOT having the fire would have been a more "tremendous blessing.")
- Finally, we find out that Mel Gibson, the devout Christian, producer of the blood drenched movie The Passion of Christ, and anti-Semitic holocaust denier, is being sued for divorce by his wife of 28 years. Evidently Mel couldn't keep it in his pants. With no pre-nup, half of his almost $1 billion in assets are at risk. I guess Mrs. Gibson had her fill of Mel’s Christian goodness.
Ah yes, the Lord was busy tending his flock this holiday weekend. His will be done.
