l am writing to apologize to those who may have come to church this past Sunday morning as a result of reading the Record. My sermon topic was “Wrestling with the Pagan Christ” not “The Pig in Christ” as listed in the ad on Saturday’s faith pages.
Pig wrestling fans obviously went home from church disappointed.
While Jesus did cast demons into a herd of pigs and drove them into a lake, the scriptures are silent on the possibility of him actually wrestling with them. Also, Jesus was a Jew and the likelihood of him eating pork is pretty remote, so having any pig in him is a matter of pure conjecture. Finally, I am sure that the pigs of Waterloo Region will now breathe a collective sigh of relief.
