A man dies and appears before St. Peter at the pearly gates of heaven.
St. Peter looks at the fellow and says, “Before I can let you in, I need you to roll up your sleeves.”
The man is puzzled but does as he is asked.
St. Peter examines the man’s arms and asks, “Where are your scars?”
Still confused, the man answers, “I don't have any scars.”
With tears in his eyes, St. Peter asks him, “Was nothing worth fighting for?”
Taken from Streetwalking With Jesus by Deacon John Green reviewed here
and recorded in the summer of 2010, this video offers a powerful and moving glimpse
into the lives of some of the people the Emmaus outreach ministry deal with in
Chicago and the fantastic work that they do.
