First of all, hers is a Tiger. His is a Lion.
And then, hers is some kind of weird mix of Jungle Jane and sex symbol – and really, painting the elephant’s toenails pink?
His is more focused: The good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Hers is a cool song – better, I think without the ridiculous video. His is a life-changing message.
When I was a child, on April 25 one of the priest’s in the parish would stop over to our house with a treat – maybe some chocolate or something sweet – and wish me a “Happy Feast Day”. It is the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist – symbolized by a winged lion. Perhaps you might read a few chapters from the Gospel of Mark today. From the prophet Isaiah to John the Baptist to the Christ himself, there is something immediate, compelling, healing and powerful – something holy and deeply true in what Mark has to say and the story he has to tell. Listen … and you might hear the very roar of God.
A blessed Tuesday.
