If only I had an anonymous blog

I could then tell you about the family for whom I am doing a funeral this weekend, the same family who has only been to church four times in the seven years I've been here because I "don't preach from the Bible", the same family who called today and said, "we have two scriptures in mind -- where is that one that talks about an evergreen being like the soul and the one about slipping the bonds of Earth to touch the face of God?" the family about whom it has suddenly become obvious that there might be a reason that they don't recognize that black book in front of me when I preach.
But I don't, so I won't.

Thanks, April. Love you too.

And funny entry, btw . . .people are just so frustrating sometimes.

Amy said...

Wow. Good luck with that funeral.

Could be an excellent opportunity too.
