The Crocodile's Mouth
After finishing a series entitled It all goes back in
Crocodile's Mouth is taking a break.
We will be making plans for the fall.
Spend the morning with Jesus at the breakfast table.
This is the place and time
for families, friends, and neighbors to come together
and catch a few words of inspiration from Scripture,
in an enjoyable atmosphere.
With a serving of good food and great music
There is no charge.
Why "crocodile's mouth"?
A meaningful symbol for the church and Christians today is the Egyptian
Plover, the little bird that walks right inside the crocodile's mouth and pick
food out between the crocodile's teeth. That's a scary position to be in. Yet
God created this little bird to have this symbolic relationship with an animal
that, left to its natural instinct, would destroy it. The crocodile gets a
dental cleaning while the bird gets lunch.
I think that is what God calls the church and Christians to do today - help
others and sing our song while standing in the jaws of harm. There is a lot
that could frighten Christians now: being politically incorrect, worldwide
persecution, recession, war on terrorism, collapsing values, and institutions.
Yet Jesus calls us to keep loving, caring, and singing. We are committed to
openly following Jesus during tough times. It was Jesus who openly stood up for
all of us sinners inthe face of God and man's wrath. Being with a loving church
makes the rough ride sweet.
