UH, THAT'S "MARANATHA"


An elderly Christian lady attended a Christian conference gathering, similar to Keswick/Spring Harvest etc. For her it was really the first time she had mixed with Christians from other denominations. This really blessed her and opened her eyes to the richness of Christian traditions.


She especially liked it when the preacher suggested, instead of using the normal greetings, why not use one popularised by the early Church. He pointed out that the first Christians were so eagerly awaiting the return of Christ that they used the word 'maranatha,' an Aramaic word meaning 'the Lord is coming.'


The elderly lady took this on board and the next day went around greeting everyone they met with the words, "Marijuana, brother, marijuana."
