The article "Pearls before Breakfast" goes further than just music. It seems to me at least to suggest something larger about Jesus as well...What would happen if we put Jesus in a subway system today? Would people just walk by him? Would we even know what we were looking for if we found him?
Danny, that's kinda how I used it as an illustration in this preach recently no starbucks at golgotha
that joshua bell story is incredible isnt it. I'd be interested where cj went with it? I came across it in belgium while we studying john 1-5 (here)I find it useful especially introducing jesus to non christians - how do we even start to take seriously a revelation which calls our very perception and nobility into question?
