Jesus Saves Dogs

Jesus Saves DogsWell here we go again, Jesus appearing on a grilled cheese sandwich, Mary appearing all over, and Jesus appearing now on a doggy door.

The opening line of the article in the Riverside CA, Press Enterprise, January 17, 2007 read:

Is it divine intervention or just dirt on a doggy door?

Max, having an aggressive streak was saved from the neeedle, Hercules a purebred lab saved from adoption into another family through the local pound. The power of an apparition…can save dogs. I am impressed how people can be moved by such silliness, having been unmoved by the cross.

Well, it is just dirt on a doggy door, as you can plainly see. The owners plan to frame and backlight the image…maybe people will marvel at this modern icon years in the future.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.
