Eight times over the last weekend, I came out of a giant suitcase dressed in an egg-shell mattress singing “I’m so cool” to the Carly Simon tune of “You’re So Vain”. Being the pompous primitive sponge that I was and touting all of my glorious colors and self-replaceability, I was, of course, infuriated by the human-sized worm that followed me and began singing about her own amazing vitamin emissions and slime excretions. By the time the fish, snake, frog, birds and mammals (including a humongous mole and the cutest dog ever) had all popped out and done their musical numbers the kids were not falling for the incredulous story that the professor was laying on them about billions and billions of years turning slime into humans that think and create and protect and love. In fact, the story that came from the little boy’s prized book in his small suitcase—the one that ended with “And so God made man in his own image,” is the one that won the day. I’m glad, because that book is the one that will win the final day (John 12:48).
