For You On-the-Go Christians

I love working in ministry.  It gives me "hook-ups", if you will, to things you lay people couldn't dream of getting your hands on.  For instance:  what do the rest of you do if you're on a road trip and suddenly feel God calling you to join Him and your fellow travelers in communion?  You probably have to wait until you get back to your church, thus putting God off and disappointing Him mightily.

But those of us in ministry...well, we have that covered.


(My friend Timm, a youth pastor, thought the bottom one was Christian brass knuckles.  Those would be handy for a youth pastor, I think.  Just sayin)

I think we should all have these in our cars.  What if we have one of those "Ethiopian Eunuch" moments like Phillip did?  What if we lead a fellow traveler to follow Jesus, but there isn't a body of water around to baptize him?  No problem.  Just pull into a rest stop, and have communion. 

I get the non-profit rate and free shipping.  Let me know how many of these babies I can put you down for.

Nothing else snarky to say, just sending this to your inbox. I'm a giver like that.

Oooo! I'm forwarding this link to Jeff right away!

Ahh, the brass knuckles comment made me actually LOL (I never write that because normally it's not true).

I like this. As boy scouts (as well as Scar and the hyenas) are prone to say, "be prepared!" Good advice.

I MADE JASON LOL YA'LL. I'm printing this out and putting it my hope chest, right next to my personal letter from Beth Moore.

I also thought those were brass knuckles at first.

This portable set reminds me of the outdoor communion sets we got at my last church for an outdoor service. I called them Jesus Happy Meals. The name never took off with the rest of the staff.

Oh, I forgot to post my link to the Jesus Happy Meals. I'm not cool and trendy, so you'll just have to copy and paste it.

Thanks for the link, Kat!
I like the ambition of "The Traveler."
The other models only allow for communion with yourself and five others (which, by the way: 6-holed brass knuckles? Am I the only one who grew up in that part of town?).
Anyway, "The Traveler" has a place for a bottle, a box of wafers, and a whole stack of cups. It almost screams, "I am ready for roadside revival."

I love that the traveler still has tiny juice cups.

Wendy said...

I just don't know which one to choose! I mean, the traveler comes with so many cups, which is great, but a tiny little juice container like that wouldn't hold nearly enough juice for all those cups. Sure, the legacy has a bigger juice container, but it only comes with 6 cups. Just how much of the Blood do people really need to have? I guess the deluxe is the only logical way to go. And I've always wanted a stainless steel bread container.

"But Occifer, I was just on my way to communion. Do you know Jesus?" You'll be ok as long as he doesn't think those are brass knuckles. If he does, you're toast.

I'll take two, Marni.

tiny juice cups ROCK.

...Now to have them available in a convenient travel kit...WOOT!
