OK, shout out to all Kiwi Wall Watchers, this one is for you!
We are in the first working week of the New Year, and already we have a God Sighting of the Month. Good times!
But this isn’t from the Roman Catholic Church, or even the states, it’s in New Zealand (for those who didn’t know if I was talking to a breathing fruit or not) and found on a piece of Pita bread.
And where? For sale online, no less.
The TradeMe auction shows a photo of the pita bread, which broke into pieces after being put in the oven. One piece, the seller says, resembled the face of Jesus. “I was tempted to eat it but for some reason I didn’t,” the seller says in their auction listing.
To that, enter your own transubstantiation humor here.
Of course, the branding/PR guy part of me wants to know if Jesus’ ministry was formed in the days of multimedia and bottom line outreach, would the bread Jesus broke look like this shred of table scraps for marketing purposes to hit the store shelves nationally? IJS.
