40 Days of Lent - Day Twenty-Eight



This made me laugh out loud. In case you can't read it, the packaging say "He who may not be shown." It's almost like buying someone a pet rock, except that I guess a pet rock would refer to Peter, the rock on which Christ said he would build His church.

I started two entries today and got stuck with each of them. I will work on them later and post them this week. I thought the above toy does fit in with one of the essays which is a further consideration of word versus image in religion.

A friend just called about having dinner together - Praise the Lord! But first:

Today's reading from the Faithful Words Promise Box:
Thou art coming to a King
Large petitions thou must bring
for His love and power are such,
None can ever ask too much.

Now, I am no stranger to toys -- believe me, every step I take, I'm in danger of stepping on one -- but what exactly IS the toy in that package?

Okay, now my verification word is "anus." Honestly.

That is the mother of all actionless figures. I wanna play with it!

I believe the package is empty because Allah can not be depicted.

Slappy - if by "actionless" you mean "helping out his creations down here on Earth," I heartily agree.

Is it Allah who can't be depisted or Mohammed? They're not one and the same, are they?
