Sunday evening, Jackson and I went to church for a really impressive "illusionist" show. He even had a Christian message and talked about the difference between him doing magic — and Jesus performing miracles.
For his final trick, he said the rope represented our relationship with God; with God on one end and us on the other. Because we sin, he used scissors to cut the rope in a few places but tied it back together as we confess. Then he explained that God forgives us and — poof — he blew the knots away and it was one continuous piece of rope again!
