Sunday’s Best: A Splash in the Face

Charles Schulz’s “hand puppet theater” strips are always an interesting thread in the Peanuts run.  This Sunday’s classic Peanuts had a nice, simple joke worth sharing.

Peanuts SplashMy chapel talk this week is about the Biblical Story.  It’s a common refrain from me, one that kind of connects to what Snoopy and Lucy do here: there’s this weird overlap between the story and our moment with it.  Sometimes it’s a real splash in the face, a reminder of the great Story that we are all in.  Sometimes we hear it again and it wake us up, we find evidence of it in our own lives, like wet hair and water down the cheek.
