What Would Jesus [Blank]? 

"What would Jesus do?" was bad enough, but when the national "What would Jesus drive?" anti-SUV campaign began, I hit my exasperation limit. Where do people get off telling others how Jesus would act, when his teachings have been subject to widely varying interpretations for centuries? What presumption! What gall!

Or at least that's what I thought. Then, a couple of nights ago, much to my surprise and shock -- now, don't think I'm crazy or anything -- Jesus came to me in a dream and, as if he understood my frustrations, he told me what he would drive. And then he told me a lot of other things he would do if he were physically present in the world today. I know how weird this sounds, believe me, but it really happened. And he told me to let everyone know so there won't be any more stupid arguments about what he'd do in various situations.

So, at risk to my credibility, and as a leap of faith and in hopes of finally settling these moronic questions once and for all -- here are the things Jesus told me he would do. Really.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
