Can Snack Foods Save Your Soul:
Even if laced with trans-fats?
Corn Dog - the Dimond District's amazing world wide web snoop - shared a hilarious youtube clip with me in which a woman is interviewed after she found a cheeto snack that looks like Jesus or maybe cheesus. Maybe such divine intervention in mass-produced snack foods is what God is up to these days and the way through which God is seeking to encourage and empower humankind. Who knows? Here's the video clip.
I find it striking that we're so quick to identify Jesus and the virgin Mary in cheetos, grilled-cheese sandwiches, and other edibles; yet we struggle so much to discern God's presence in our world, our human relationships, the stickiness that our morality-based parameters lead us into in our transforming world - moving from a "Christian" to a pluralistic nation/culture/society. I don't doubt that people are seeing this, experiencing God as they snack. I've seen the Jesus Cheeto bit. Yet what is it all about? Is it about grabbing a moment of fame?; a good laugh?; a misplaced spirituality?; or is it that God cares more about General Mills than the General State of our world?
