We dodge religion like vampires shrink from garlic toast, and itd take a Supreme Being-size miracle to lure us back.
Jesus Christ, heres one now!
The Son of God Himself is scheduled to appear at 8 and 11:30 a.m. Sunday, May 25, at Scottsdales City of Grace, 9610 East Cactus Road. (Hell be at the churchs Mesa campus, 655 East University Drive, at 10 a.m.) Okay, its not really the Big Dude, but someone with more than a passing resemblance: Jim Caviezel, who portrayed the bloodied and battered Jesus in Mel Gibsons harrowing film The Passion of the Christ.
The unapologetically Christian actor nor should he apologize will give ministry, or what the church terms sharing with Pastor Terry Crist. Personally, well brave being preached at, cause were a fan of Caviezel, whose filmography also includes Terrence Malicks The Thin Red Line, Lawrence Kasdans Wyatt Earp, and Ang Lees Ride With the Devil.
Admission is free, but you know theyre gonna pass the basket.
Sat., May 24, 6 p.m.; Sun., May 25, 10 a.m., 2008
