Ever wonder why Cheers the TV show was such a big hit?
Ever wonder why Jesus got kicked-out of religion and hung around with one, three, or 12 others most of the time?
Possibly, he liked hanging out more than attending.
Possibly, he would have done fine at Cheers Bar and Grill, “Where everyone knows your name.”
Possibly, he’s more into relationships than we’ve been told.
My five (or nine) or so friends (“every one” of whom “knows [my] name” and I theirs) and I are going to hang out at Fasting Prayer Mountain of the World (Hey, why not go global?) Saturday, August 3rd, from 10 AM–3 PM.
We will sit around with each other and share and listen to each other and to God. It’s experimental and experiential and we love it. It has a Jesus-y feel to it but no robes are required (clothes are. consider layering).
So why not say, “Honey, let’s go on a drive to stay alive, up to Fasting Prayer Mountain of the World. It’ll be fun. Plus, John and his 5-9 friends will be there too, just hanging out.”
Jesus said he would end up attracting “all people to himself,” so if he attracts you, come on by. If he doesn’t, come on by anyway, and we’ll cover for you (although, there will be no cover charge).
Place: Fasting Prayer Mountain of the World: 997 Lockhart Gulch Rd, Scotts Valley, CA 95066
Time: 10 AM – 3 PM
Site: Look for a beautiful Balloon Bouquet and my late-model Bentley (disguised as a topaz green 2010 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan to avoid extra traffic tickets and hotel charges. Just keeping it modest!).
Info: Call me (John with the Bentley) at 209.564.7201 or write firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you there.
