Christians Are Chickens (the animals…metaphorically speaking)

Today I’m guest posting over at The House Studio, one of my favorite places and publishers in the world. They’re creating all kinds of quality books. And I’m not just saying that because they’re nice people, or they let me guest post every once in a while. My post over there is entitled “Jesus: Shepherd or Chicken Farmer?”:

About a month ago I bought nine chickens and two guinea fowl. Four of them have black feathers – they are the layers. Five of them are white – those are the boilers. The guinea fowl are just there to eat ticks and, hopefully, live long happy lives.

The kids understand the difference between the layers and the boilers, the practical application being that they have named the black-feathered chickens after their favorite cousins, while the white-feathered variety, destined for our dinner table, remain nameless.

If this is your first time here, you may notice that this week I’ve been asking a lot of questions:

“Are artists generally melancholy people, or is that a stereotype?”
“Imitation: The Sincerest Form of…Art?”
“Does the Bible Have a Monopoly on Truth?”

There’s also two of my most read posts of all time: “Confessions From the Guy Standing at the Back of the Church” or “The Opposite of Love is not Hate”

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. So the next blog might be…. the white chickens may be secure and confident enough to face the dinner table (persecution). They don’t need the “coop” every week, but return to encourage the black chickens out.

    Something like that ???
