Mickey's Place 07/25/2001
Shirts and mugs and bumper-stickers to mark the visit. A photo album will document meetings with Pluto, Goofy and others for years to come. Children will grow up knowing that at one time in their lives they visited the place where Mickey dwells. It will be one of many pleasant family memories.
That they were there during the West Coast Believers Convention was of little consequence. They had lodged in the same hotels and eaten in the same restaurants. They had seen the registration badges and convention bags proclaiming Jesus They had seen the daily crowds of joyous believers, and been confronted by an inner witness that perhaps there was a greater family good in Anaheim than the creation of fanciful memories. But they had plans--what of the kids? This was their visit too?
And indeed, it could have been. It could have been more than a visit. It could have been an acquainting with One who would take up permanent residence so that there would be no need to remember. Next year it can be.
Let it be our prayer that next year's West Coast Believers Convention will so overflow with the Spirit of God that those visiting Anaheim for a world of fantasy will return home knowing the One true God, and with His power upon them.
