God's Children

On October 26th the Campus Ministry USA came to Colorado College. More specifically, they came to the sidewalk outside Worner. If you don’t remember this visit, maybe a description of the cast will jog your memory: There was Brother Jed, who wore an unforgettable combination of cowboy hat, wooden staff depicting Christ’s crucifixion and a spiffy tan suit. Jed’s younger and louder fellow preacher (Jed told me he’s “sort of an intern”) is named Joshua. He donned a tux and usually carried a sign that said “JESUS SAVES.” And, of course, Cindy made an appearance too. She’s also known as “The Bloody Tampon Lady”—a sensible epithet considering the bloody tampons she waves around on a stick while preaching.
