I get to give a sermon next week on Joshua chapter 24, which includes Joshua’s farewell speech and covenant renewal with the general people of Israel. Verse 15 is particularly well known, especially the last sentence:
And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
This is a great quote and I frequently see this verse displayed as artwork on walls in homes. I thought for fun I would do a survey of what these things can look like.
OK. That’s pretty nice.
Not too shabby.
Going for the illuminated manuscript look this time.

As for me, I shall wear a tie and sport a receding hairline.
As for me and my house, we shall wear matching shirts during a professional photo shoot.
As for me and my pumpkin…
I think I’ll write a book!
I think I’ll write another book! This time a self-published novel with $2 in bad stock photography on the cover.
Shalom!!! Hebrew is cool.
The obligatory spoof.
