The end is near!

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?

  1. It makes me think about the cartoon character holding a sign. But seriously, in 1 John 2:18 John says “… this is the last hour … the antichrist is coming…” Maybe not the same thing, but in a way it is. Centuries ago John warned us to be ready, to be on guard, to watch for antichrists (those opposed to Christ). I guess we are closer today more than ever. Perhaps I should brush up on Joel because I too don’t feel fine.
