When Jesus rode into Jerusalem astride a simple donkey, the adoring crowds were struck by the powerful imagery of both His humility and His dignity. Yet how much more powerful would the whole scene have been if He had been clinging miraculously to the back of a mechanical bull? A lot more powerful I think we can all agree.
Now you have the chance to create what might have been (minus Jesus and the adoring crowds) and it's all in a good cause!
The Robson Square Rodeo on November 25 is raising funds for the The United Way charity, which does great work in the local community and beyond. A $15 ticket gets you a buffet meal, one drink and a raffle ticket to win a 19" flatscreen TV (and you can ride Vancouver's only mechanical bull!). The whole thing takes place at The Bourbon Country Bar in Gastown and runs from 5:00-7:00pm, so it's a great way to start the evening. Other prizes will be on offer too.
Details of the event are here.
I don't claim to speak for Jesus (not since the new medication started to take effect) but I'm pretty sure He'd be okay with you buying tickets for this.
