Redeeming Animism, Part 6: My De-Liver-Er

Standard

Continued from Part 5

Prologue

The eagle stands apart on a nearby rock, delicately nibbling a newly-harvested liver.
The mouse looks on in horror;

The man slowly regains conscious, groaning in pain.
The snake raises its head to stare into the man’s face.
The man opens his eyes, and gravely greets the snake.

Dialogue

Earnest: Thank you, Nehushtan.

Communion of the Betrayed

Standard

COTB is designed specifically for people who feel they have been betrayed by someone close to them (as Jesus was). This is a very deep wound that requires extraordinary grace.

Special thanks to Jamie Winship of Identity Exchange for his input and encouragement.
