What Would You Do with a Wormhole?

First: Happy Birthday, Albert!

Second: Thank you Stephen,  Luanne, and Laura for imagining and organizing this clever hop: What would you do or where would you go if you could traverse a wormhole through space or time just once? One safe round trip passage. 

Third: What am I gonna do with my wormhole?

Since it's only one trip, I'd go to the time and place that would best prepare me for the long haul once I returned to here and now. So I'd go to Galilee about 28 A.D. I'd jimmy the wormhole to put me near the crowd that listened to Jesus deliver the Sermon on the Mount. I wouldn't understand the language he was speaking, though he might make it so I could, but even if he didn't, I think just hearing his voice speak those crucial lessons and watching the early Christians drink them up for the very first time would drive them into my heart in a deeper, more indelible way than they ever have been before. And that would be pretty cool. :)

wow, is it a one way trip or do we get to go home too?
seeing Jesus would be awesome, but I can wait to see him in heaven, for reals!

i've always wanted to hang out with mark twain, he's a hoot & i think they had indoor plumbing by then? (dealbreaker!)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Amen! That would be cool to see. And I'm sure He would make it so you understood. Going back to meet Jesus was an idea I toyed with for the blogfest.

Scribbles From Jenn said...

That would be very cool to not just read His words, but to actually hear them. I love it!! I wish I had thought of it.

L.G. Smith said...

Have you ever been to Israel? I can imagine going there and seeing the sites would almost be like going back in time like that.

And cool idea about the Blog Blitz. :)

LTM said...

Hey! This is a fun game. That would be an amazing sight to see, just from all kinds of perspectives--both the history and the inspiration and the power. I can't even imagine.

Can I tag along? :D <3

Damyanti said...

That would lay all the conspiracy theories to rest -- you can come back and write a whopping bestseller!

I've already signed up for the Blog Blitz :)

Stephen Tremp said...

Very cool idea! Would you take a smartphone and capture it to replay once you came back?

mshatch said...

Interesting choice. I wonder if his words would be what we think they were - or something entirely different.

T. Drecker said...

I'm sure He'd make sure you understood. Probably even look your way :)

LD Masterson said...

I didn't do the blog hop but that was my first choice, too. I couldn't think of anything greater.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Great choice. And I know you'd be able to understand him, and he would know that you're there. Who knows? Maybe there were other time travelers there, too...

Janie Junebug said...

That's a brilliant and really cool choice.

Love,
Janie

Lexie C. said...

Wonderful choice for your wormhole! :)

Maurice Mitchell said...

Great choice. I'm sure his warm body language wuold convey a lot of what he had to say Nicki.

D.G. Hudson said...

A good choice, and it seems to be one many writers share. Beware those Romans though, and Judas.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Cool idea. Personally I'd rather not go back in time because women didn't have many rights until recently. And some places I wouldn't want to go to in the future for this reason.

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

That would be a great experience and hopefully you'd be able to have your Bible with you to follow along if you couldn't understand.

Make sure you get a touch of even the hem of his garment to cure any ailments you may have!

Jemi Fraser said...

Good choice. It's fun to imagine all the possibilities! :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Wow! That would be awesome to sit at Jesus' feet for the Sermon on the Mount!

Adriana Dascalu said...

wow, you've chosen such a decisive and important moment! with such a special segnificance! great idea!

M. J. Joachim said...

Oh, it would be so amazing to listen to Jesus when He walked the earth! And the Sermon on the Mount! Such a positively wonderful choice, you've made!

Sandy Campbell said...

I would love to see this! Would be so amazing!

ckpoisonedrose said...

That would certainly be amazing to see. :)

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hi, Nicki,

What an AMAZING and UBER SPIRITUAL pilgrimage.

michelle said...

Hey, was that you in the front of the crowd? I thought I recognized a familiar face!

C.M.Brown said...

A very different trip!

Shell Flower said...

That would be pretty cool to behold. I'm sure you would understand Him, too!

Trisha F said...

My thinking tends to go the way of mshatch up there ;)

I love DL's Blog Blitz idea, it's going to be so cool!

Lynn(e) Schmidt said...

That would be pretty cool to hear. Really, listening to anyone influential give their speech would be amazing, MLK, Gandhi, etc. Good call.

Melissa Bradley said...

Wow, I'd love to go with you on your wormhole trip. And I know He'd make it so we understood. It would be breathtaking.

Mark Means said...

That'd be a good one and something you'd never forget.

nutschell said...

That would be pretty awesome, too!

A great use for the wormhole.
I've been seeing items all day as well about the Blog Blitz, I'm on my way over!

M Pax said...

That would be neat. There are many points in history I'd be awed to witness.

Tina said...

I thought about that, too. But I'll get to see Him in eternity and didn't choose a Jesus wormhole, but something more personal. Thanks for your kind comment.
Nice to meet you, sister!

Now that's a trip!!

Thank you for the Blog Blitz shout out. We're starting to pick up some momentum. :)

Carrie-Anne said...

Having been to (21st century) Galilee, I'd really recommend it as a beautiful, peaceful area of Israel. It's amazing how calm and accepting people are up there, perhaps because of its history of having different groups living together peacefully. I'd love to see how Israel looked in those days, when the ruins were real buildings.

EvalinaMaria said...

Sounds like a lovely journey, may I come along?

meradeth said...

This would certainly be an interesting trip!

Jennifer Lane said...

Only 9 days until your release!!

YAHOO!

Laoch of Chicago said...

There was an infamous science fiction novel by Michael Moorcock in the late 1960s entitled "Behold the Man," about a man who travels back in time to see Jesus, to disconcerting consequences.

Medeia Sharif said...

That would be fascinating to listen to. There are so many things in history that would be cool to see in trips back in time.

Bradley Bechtle said...

What a delightfully genuine and good-hearted response. I'm not a religious man myself, and I envy those whose hearts are lead by spirituality. Love your writing-- glad to have found this blog via the hop. I shall be purchasing your book when it is released. Best of luck!

Arlee Bird said...

I like your choice. This would be an awesome experience for sure.

I missed out on doing this Wormhole Fest, but I've been missing out on a lot of blogging things lately.

Book release day coming soon!
