In church this morning, Ben led a community exegesis of the Good Samaritan text, and then we did a little skit modernizing the characters. We took the new characters from the suggestions of the congregation:
The Jericho Road? I-495
Priest and Levite: a respected member of our church community and Jimmy Carter
The Samaritan: Manny Ramirez (though it was between him, Derek Jeter, and we heard some people suggest A-Rod as well).
Only in Massachusetts....
