This afternoon we'll be studying a book about an alien. It's out of this world: the guy's dad asked him to leave the perfect place where white carpet stays white, to come here with a gift. (No, his name wasn't Superman). He invaded our world quietly, demonstrated ability with shaping cellulose and subduing dihydrogen oxide, and gradually showed us that he himself was the gift. After guys in brass and guys in linen killed him, his dad brought him back to life, and he could walk through doors and give people phenomenal fishing tips. Best yet, he showed us that he was the way to the place where the white carpet stays white.
P.S. Ever feel that maybe your home planet isn't this one? Check out Hebrews 11:13-16.
Are you a resident alien?
