Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Psalm 23:5
This story is about a fictional church with irreverent leaders, and all are named Christian; but there’s an unusual twist. The main characters are scriptures, while some characters are the opposite of scripture. These irreverent leaders are often in competition with one another but consider it ministry.
Brother Christian believes his ego is charisma, and he uses the Bible to manipulate people solely for his benefit. He also regularly assaults his wife, Mrs. Christian.
After another Sunday fight, he uses the Shepherd of Psalm 23 against her. Later, when he decides to take a nap, just before falling asleep, he hazily envisions the Shepherd standing right in front of him! Soon he is dead asleep, yet wide awake in a strange yet familiar place.
Brother Christian will soon understand the meaning of “in the presence” as he is immersed in the greatest battle over his soul, and he ends up wholly traumatized!
Who or what did Brother Christian discover while "in the presence," about the Shepherd, and himself?
