How did you react when you heard about Harold Camping’s prophecy that the end of the world was going to be on a specific date last year? There were loads of interesting responses. Some people cashed in their life savings and signed up to travel cross-country telling people to beware. Some people ignored it completely. Some were captivated by the ample news coverage. Some people were confused. Others had a lot of fun teaching us a new word: rapture-bomb. I downloaded an old REM favorite and played it a couple times: It’s the End of the World as we know it and I feel fine.
I’ll admit having a creepy feeling that day. So maybe I didn’t feel 100% fine. Actually, many of us don’t. In preparation for Worship in the Park, and our study of book of Joel, I encourage you to read it. Post your thoughts and comments here. Joel has some surprising things to say about The End. How does it make you feel?
