John the Baptist and the PR Consultant
Matthew 3:1-12 – Year A: Advent 2

Narrator: In those days John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness of Judea, proclaiming,
John: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near. This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, "The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.'
Narrator: Now John wore clothing of camel's hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. And verily a PR consultant from Jordan did say unto him:
PR: I’m just not sure it’s working, darling.
John: What isn’t working?
PR: The camel hair. It’s not really reflecting current trends.
John: I’m not trying to reflect current trends, I’m trying to warn people that now is the time our people have been waiting for.
