An Angel, a Deacon, and a Eunuch by Raymond A. Foss
What was it that the daily reflection asked? Oh yeah, it was, “If you were set down beside the carriage of the Ethiopian, what would you ask?” His response was priceless, “Hey buddy, could you stop that chariot, my feet are killing me!”
Okay, so not the mental picture the writer of Acts had in mind with the strange story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch.
A funny scene, a scholar without a clue, reading the prophets of a people not his own Needing an interpreter finding an agile deacon instead sent by an angel on a different path
A vision, a sprint, a chat, a dunking, and poof, He’s gone teleported away, snatched up; an imponderable moment like so many in Acts spreading the word as the Spirit MOVES you…
May 22, 2006 10:20pm Based on Acts 8:26-40 and my conversation with the Reverend Joel B. Guillemette on the questions in the Daily Reflections section on Alive Now for May 8, 2006 – “Read the account of Philip and the Ethiopian in Acts 8:26-40. What do you find most amazing about this story? If you were set down beside the carriage of the Ethiopian, what would you say?” He was the only other human in the bible besides Elijah to be moved by God directly as far as we knew.
