When I was a little boy, Free Methodist preachers walked us around in the shoes of Moses and Elijah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel.
They showed us how to imagine emotions and wrinkles hidden in those brief accounts. They gave us permission to look at the text and think, perchance to daydream.
So, many years later, I show how it might work for Elijah to be “subject to like passions as we are.”1James 5:17
I hope this story encourages you to look at the Bible and think, maybe even dream about how the Lord uses ordinary people.
