The Gospel of Frank the Tank

We have been going through the Rob Bell book Drops like Stars: A Few thoughts on Creativity and Suffering during worship service.

Rob Bell touches on the above scene from Old School.  Death by wallpaper and flooring he calls it.

The lectionary this past Sunday included Mark 10:17-31. The passages include such things as “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” and ” Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

I think Jesus is clear here; Don’t end up like Frank the Tank.  Seek meaning and seek solidarity with others.
