This is Penn Jillette of comedy/magic duo Penn and Teller fame. A number of you have probably seen it…but maybe someone hasn’t. He’s talking about meeting someone who apparently made an impact on him. It’s kind of an important reminder and a really interesting watch. Check it out. It’s only like 5 minutes.
If you think of it, you might say a small prayer for Penn…and not just the shallow “please change his heart blahblahblah” thing (though that’s absolutely wonderful). You might also pray for his physical well-being, his ability to keep doing what he does, and for his continued happiness and/or success. The felt-needs sometimes outweigh the theological ones, and we should want him to be happy as well as saved. (Plus, I tend to think that entertainers are doing God’s work, even if they don’t believe in him. As such, I’d like to see him keep going.)
You might also try saying a prayer (and/or giving a crap) about the people in your life that you’ve never even spoken the name of Christ to, much less proselytized. Just food for thought. We can all pray for Penn Jillette…but how about our neighbors, too?
…huh…I actually wrote a Christian blog post. Whodathunkit?
I also blogged twice in one day…but I’ve done that before. 🙂
