You know those annoying Internet ads that say: “Google your name and brace yourself.”
Well, Google the name John Crist. Or better yet, just YouTube him. (Hmm, wait a minute. Is “YouTube” now a verb like Google?) And brace yourself.
Better yet, don’t bother. I’ll save you the trouble. Just click here.
And be prepared to laugh yourself sick!!!!!!
We Christians need to laugh at ourselves. And John Crist is the man assigned by God to help us do that. He’s a missionary, all right. He’s on a mission to get all of us to lighten up.And even if you’re not Christian feel free to laugh along. It’s nice to know we all share something in common.
All God’s blessings – Mark
