Body Envy

My latest shampoo experience.

When I picked up this bottle in a shower in Switzerland I thought, “At last, the perfect shampoo that describes me.”

Until I realized it wasn´t talking about my amazingly hairy chest or tummy-man-pouch. The word “body” in reference to hair isn´t something I have thought about for a long time.

But it did fit well with what I was teaching on at the Yverdon School of Worship last week. Paul wrote in two different places about a jealousy with a Spirit of evangelism on it. (Romans 11:11, 2 Corinthians 11:2). That the world would find the Body of Christ so attractive they would be jealous. The concept being that we move from evangelism through intrusion and invasion, to evangelism by invitation.

Unfortunately, it takes more than amazing shampoo for that one. ch:

Update: Flying from Madrid back to Geneva today. Geneva to NY tomorrow. Appreciate your prayers.

You’re just not doing very well with the shampoo bottles are you? At least you got an illustration out of it. That is very good, and yes it does take more then a shampoo for that!

And I’ll be in Geneva, NY later today for our Thursday evening Bible study. We’ll both be in a Geneva, but I think yours was there a very long time before this one was. 🙂

Hope you, Jennifer, and Judah make it back to New York safe and sound!

I really was hoping you would say Geneva, NY but alas Geneva Switzerland is better.

Elyssa, I attend church in Geneva, NY. Geneva Christian Fellowship. 😀

It’s also the city I was born in and we like to grocery shop at Wegmans there. All of those are very good reasons for me to like the city. 🙂
