CHRISTMAS: Theft of Jesus – The Sequel!

"Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.
Revelation 22:12
If you recall, a few weeks ago I reported on the theft of Baby Jesus from a South Australian Brewing company’s annual nativity. Well, I’m happy to report that Jesus has been returned; not by the thief but by a benefactor.

Brewing company managing director Mark Powell said despite a reward of six cases of beer for the return of the original Jesus there’ve been no leads.

United Church Minister Lawrie Linggood presided over a simple reinstallation service, offering the new Jesus his blessing. He prayed, “that this little doll will touch people's lives."

Well now, those who live by faith know that Jesus is coming quickly and there will be no need for a benefactor. There will also be no need for Jesus to touch people’s lives at that time … it will be too darn late!
