In April of 2015, retired post office worker Marianne Winkler was wandering along the coast of Amrum, an island off the coast of Germany, when she happened upon a message in a bottle. Inside, a postcard requested its return to a British marine biologist, George Parker Bidder, with the promise of a single shilling upon arrival. After careful study, Guinness World Records has deemed it the oldest message in a bottle ever found, after it spent 108 years and 138 days floating in the North Sea.
This was indeed a remarkable discovery. However, the message of salvation through Jesus has been available for nearly 2,000 years! Don’t keep that message bottled up! Spread it far and wide!
