I just watched the trailer for Oz:The Great and Powerful, coming out next spring. It inspired my title for this post but has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m about to say. Well, except for this: there is one breathless line in the trailer that basically says, “Are you the One we’ve been waiting for?”
That line kills, doesn’t it? The universal cry for rescue. For some majestic Other who has a cosmic plan that makes sense of our world filled with flying monkeys and wicked witches.
And, here is the kicker: We know Him! The One who is greater even than Oz! Man, I wish I could somehow introduce the whole weary world to Him.
That thought does lead me into where I was heading in the first place. I’m in the process of re-designing my website. Or actually, Jaymes of Scribbles & Scribes fame is in the process. I’m just shooting him whiny emails that say things like, “I think the red is too orange. No, wait. Now it’s too pink. And can you make the straight lines rounder and take about twenty pounds off my face?”
The site may be down for a few days eventually while Jaymes does his magic. (Once he gets home from his current missions trip to Moldova). When it comes back up, be ready to sign-up for the newsletter I’ll be launching this fall. Don’t worry, it’s free. I don’t suppose I’ll manage to introduce the whole world to Jesus, but I hope to encourage a few souls along the way. So, put on your ruby red slippers or jump in your hot-air balloon, and let’s launch this new adventure together!
