When I was a child, I had a small toy ark, complete with miniature animals. I think most kids in the Western world with a Christian upbringing have probably had one at some point. I know our oldest son has owned multiple versions, owing mostly to the fact that his name is Noah.
I’ve always wanted to see an actual-size replica though. Apparently there is one in Dordrecht, Netherlands that is full to one-fifth scale, depending on who you ask. It took Johan Huibers 20 years to complete, and it must be a sight to behold.
There is also one in Hong Kong, funded by Christian real estate developers, housing a resort hotel, among other attractions. Another one sits on Mt. Ararat in Turkey, built by Greenpeace as a statement about global warming.
Whether or not these are wise endeavors and good stewardship of time and resources, or whether anyone can actually know the accurate size conversion of a “cubit”, I leave to you. More importantly, what are you doing to impact your world for the sake of the Gospel?
