Shadrach Meshach and Abednego

Angry Birds Adventskalender

walked into the digital
 furnace
we see jesus in gigabytes
 and high definition portraits
 we search for god in virtual
realities
the devil games for the hearts
 of men
like one plays angry birds
when your faith has crashed
 ask god for a
 reboot
 put the love of the disciples
 into your usb port
 and roll with it
 peace in peace out
 prayers are the emails
 that work best
 god will send you a text message
 and you will be
healed
shadrach, meshach and abednego
 walked into the fire of the
 digital age
 and jesus sat with them

 and pressed "save"
