Unless you either avoid road transport, or only travel over night, there’s a chance you’ve found yourself in a traffic jam.
If you’ve gone anywhere during a bank holiday weekend in Devon or Cornwall, theres a chance you’re still in one.
So how should a Christian life relate to being stuck in a traffic jam?
Here are a few ideas*:
- Before you leave, proudly put up your “Bless off” bumper sticker. (With thanks to Midfaith crises for the idea)
- Put the windows down. Get that Christian music on LOUD.
- When the cars come to a stop, take a walk amongst the cars, putting your emergency stash of gospel tracts into peoples open windows. Trust in God that you’re not going to get ran over.
- Point at the person in the car next to you. Pray in tongues. Loudly. While pointing at them. With your eyes open. Wide.
- Grab your emergency wireless mic, tune in your car radio, turn it up, stand on the stage (your cars roof), and proudly share your testimony.
- Take out your acoustic guitar, sing praise music while walking up and down the the traffic jam.
- Send bluetooth messages to nearby phones, offering prayer and Christian counselling to all who request it.
- Take out your wine and sandwiches, start a communion amongst your car and the cars around you. Change the subject if anyone talks about drinking and driving.
- Shout that traffic jams violate your Christian rights (because Jesus wasn’t in one), and that you should be allowed to get through.
*I also don’t recommend doing any of these. Mostly because you might die.
