The Lord Moves in Mysterious Ways

by Red Wolf

Germany: Frithjof Schwesig, vicar in the southwestern town of Lampoldshausen, ordered 300 copies of a video film portraying the life of Christ as told by the gospel according to Luke.

Unfortunately there was a wee bit of a mix up at the Munich video copying plant when they accidentally sent through the wrong movie. At a marathon viewing session that night, the good vicar and his staff established that 200 of the videos were pornographic.

In a first batch 20 to 30 videos were distributed and we immediately got a reaction from five to seven people saying we must have given them the wrong film, he said.

It's interesting to note how few parishioners complained. You have to wonder if the rest assumed they were watching the life of Christ or just think the church is moving in a new and interesting direction.
