The Bible in 50 words

Cute. (Hattip to Jon S for sending this.)

God made
Adam bit
Noah arked
Abraham split
Joseph ruled
Jacob fooled

Bush talked
Moses balked
Pharaoh plagued
People walked

Sea divided
Tablets guided

Promise landed
Saul freaked
David peeked
Prophets warned

Jesus born
God walked
Love talked
Anger crucified

Hope died
Love rose
Spirit flamed
Word spread
God remained.

Gashwin,

This and a ditty on clerical vestments (latter posting) and one would have the making of a Catholic Broadway musical.

What should be the story?

How about a Catholic priest’s effort to evangelize on college Campus in the Deep South? If one includes the mafia, a tent revival and a student protest, you have the making of Tony award winning play (or a very good Monty Python like script).

Sincerely,

Dogwood.

If you do turn it into a musical, I would be more than happy to assist in the making of a production. Speaking of which, have you heard the soundtrack to "Children of Eden"? It is really good, and although a loose intrepretation, it does a good job focusing on human-God struggles as described in the early books of the Bible.

Y'all have way too much time on your hands to come up with these ideas. (Said tongue-in-check of course by the post-midnight blogger. Who hasn't really blogged in a day or so. Yay!). Heather, I'm intrigued and will check "Children of Eden" out! Anonymous, thanks for the belch. Feel free to belch on here anytime! :)
