Muslims, Jews and Christians blessed the waves last Sunday at Huntington Beach, CA, by pouring a bowl of holy water in the ocean.
Digger Green, a 52-year-old native of Queensland, Australia, told reporters,
This is my life. It is my church.I can dig it. The beautiful, changing color of the waves, the power of the ocean, the waning significance of human endeavor, the lovely feel of the water, and the joy of playing in it, all are what I imagine believers might feel when they're in church, but what I never did - there. The waves don't need to be blessed, however. They are a blessing in themselves. They bless us.
