Taking the Plunge with Aquaman's Grace

Good evening friends,

Tonight, I would like you to take a few minutes to remember what Aquaman has tried to teach you. There is no body of water too deep or too cold to jump into. Just as Aquaman swims through perilous waters of all depths and temperatures to keep us safe from the evil schemes of Black Manta, so too are we expected to do what is necessary when the cause is just and submerge ourselves in ice water in the beginning of February.

Now, infidels and the nonbelievers will ask, "Reverend D., why would you do such a thing?" My reply would be, "why does Aquaman brave the cold water talking to fish everyday in order to save us from our sinisters?" I think the Truth is plain to see for all who choose to see the JLA's wisdom.

Yesterday, a few of us accepted Aquaman into our hearts and jumped in some ice water. And some who didn't jump did a great job raising some money to help out here and offered those of us who did plunge moral support. We had a really good time meeting, talking, swimmin' and freezin' and most of all- being thankful to Batgirl for watching over us with Her almighty blessing.

So here is a roundup of some folks who will one day sit at the Batman's side in the Hall of Justice:

Bill

The Film Geek

Jackie, who has been granted asylum by the Elders even though he refuses to give up on Marvel Comics blasphemy.

The Godfather

All Click

Mountain Laurel

Ruppie

May the Martian Manhunter bless us that we may all have this chance to get together again.

Praise be to Aquaman! As the man said, we gotta learn to embrace it. It's the only true way to salvation.

Enjoyed the meet-up so much, Reverend. :)

I will accept Aquaman, as long as it is the Aquaman version from the new Brave and the Bold cartoon on Cartoon Network.
He rocks.

This is the best church I have ever been a part of, Reverend E! I hope as your congregation expands we can continue these meet-ups.

As the good book says, "In brightest day, in blackest light..." Sorry, I'm tearing up.

I'm glad we finally got to meet in real life, which just confirmed you're as cool in person as you are on your blog.

And you guys are baadasss for braving that icy water. I believe Namor, the true Ruler of Atlantis, would approve of your icy plunge :D

THanks for the nod! Great to finally meet you...I feel like I"ve known you forever. I guess that's the power of the Justice League.
