Rachel and I returned from our Boston/New York City trip last night. We had a great time! My opting not to blog the entire week was challenging – we had many experiences and discussions that warranted blogging. I’ll try to remember them as this week goes along.
Our first night there, we walked from our B&B to Bukowski’s, a local bar that was just past the T station. We were at Bukowski’s long enough that, eventually, each of us had to use the facilities.
When Rachel returned to the table, she asked me what I thought of scratching “Jesus loves you so much” into the stall wall in a rest room.
I’d never actually given much thought to such an exercise. I suppose someone, sometime, might sit down, see the etching, and have a spiritual experience, or even feel a shot of peace, promise, or Christian encouragement.
Someone else might read it and think, “why do Christian’s damage property?” or even “wow, a Jesus-person comes to a bar, and this is what they leave?”
Bars are good places, as good as any place, for Christians to be living lives that help others want to know and understand and experience the life-changing love of God. Restrooms walls – not so much.
