Ya Think?

We just found out that our tape recording system has not been recording since late May. Nice. If you are looking for a tape of white noise that is nicely labeled with the date and title of the sermon from June 2007 through January 2008 please send me a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

Last Sunday I had my friend video-tape the service ostensibly to see if this is a viable option for posting the services on the internet and making dvd copies for anyone who might want one.

Apparantly this has led to some buzz about whether or not I might be leaving. Really. When you invite the woman who had an affair with my husband to dinner in my professional and personal space do you really get to be surprised that I might be leaving?

I don't think so.

Tell 'em you're just thinking of becoming a television preacher instead...you're trying out your on-air look. Because television preachers don't have to know when women who don't have a clue attend their services. (Dear TOW1--cluephone, it's for you.)

You're right. They don't get to be surprised. At all.

You know, we don't have an ocean, or mountains, but we do have a really big lake. :-)

PPB is far too gentle. I was gonna smack them upside the head with a cluestick!

Lookin' for my cluestick right now, as I type this! And, it's a BIG one. I'll send it right over.

The word verification for this comment is "gozaxsm" which actually expresses my thoughts better than the comment I was on the verge of composing.

So--Go Zax 'em!

Tell them that you filming is a part of the beginning stages of preparing for our cult's formation.

Yeah, but she did make you Potato soup, which is the okay for them to treat you like sheesh, right? And maple syrup too?

You know, when you get to a place where they treat you well (LIKE, ALMOST ALL THE TIME), you will be surprised to realize how much of a grace that is, and how often it is sorely missed in some rural churches (not all, but some).

I believe the tool we are looking for is bigger than the cluestick.

I think it's known as a clue-by-four.

Where is the empathy? How would they feel if it happened to them? Oh yes, I rmemeher...when I asked a friend(?) that question - she made it clear it could never happen to her!! I echo the other posts - jeez.....

Crimson Rambler said...

I like the clue-by-four, I need one in my office, right close and handy.

When I was in the military, we used to call such a realignment of reality a Come to Jesus meeting.

Blasphemous, maybe, but you can get the idea and it really is appropriate in this situation !!

I'll have to see how many clue-by-fours will fit in the trunk of the Texas Towncar of Justice. It should have been dispatched to this scene long before now.

Auntie Knickers said...

We have an ocean, and some little mountains too. As a layperson and erstwhile church lady, I can't believe some of the things I hear from you RevGals. I mean, I do believe them, but -- clue-by-fours are desperately needed in a lot of places!

I can't think of anything to say that doesn't involve a bunch of four letter words.
