Jesus said he’d build his church then this happened

Actually, it’s highly disputed whether Jesus even said this.

But we get the point of the cartoon. Certainly Jesus would have imagined a different quality of community than it often is. However, at the same time, I think Jesus would have had a realistic perception of people.

He would have known what we are capable of… profound disfunction as well as profound expressions of love.

I have no problem knowing that this vast diversity of humanity is all subsumed under a deeper, imperceptible unity.

Have you thought of joining The Lasting Supper? We’re not perfect, but we sure try to be. Join us!
