Internet Graphics in a Post-Biblical Literacy Environment

This is oh so very realistic. Sourced at Cake or Death in case you want to contact Alex Baker about using it.  

Last week I was trying to explain the basics of grace to someone who is searching through a number of spiritual options. I alluded to the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery, and also the story of the lost (prodigal) son, and realized in both cases that the person I was speaking with was not conversant with either story, so I had to backtrack and fill in the details.

Honestly, it felt strange to have to go back and say, “So there was this woman who was caught in the very act of adultery;” or “A man had two sons and the younger wanted his share of the father’s estate without having to wait around for his father to die;” especially in the environment that I was in sharing the story. I was cutting directly to the punchline as it were, but the person on the other end of the discussion had no idea who these characters were.

  1. I love it when you share your adventures in witnessing…in an honest way! To hear the Spirit whisper “Tell the rest of the story” is not something we should ever gloss over.

    I am currently practicing each week with an outreach worship team that will be singing in parks in the inner city this summer. The lead guitarist is a relatively new convert…was homeless drug addict a year ago. Sometimes when I lead devotions on worship team nights (and make assumptions about my premise), I catch his blank look. I think it is a spiritual necessity to have non believers or new believers in our lives. It keeps us real and grateful!
