…Or, Finding the Gospel in strange places.
I just finished watching “Hellboy.”Â Though I’d been hesitant about it at first, by the end I all but standing up and cheering.
“You have a choice!Â Your father gave it to you!”Â Â (Or, as I experienced that line, “You have a choice!Â Your Father gave it to you!”)
“What makes a man a man? A friend of mine once wondered. Is it his origins? The way he comes to life? I don’t think so.Â It’s the choices he makes. Not how he starts things, but how he decides to end them” (emphasis added).
Not that I thought “Hellboy” was muck.Â It’s just not the place I was expecting to encounter these pearls from the Gospel.
So, what gems have you found in what unexpected places?
