During a prayer at church tonight, after being asked to consider ways we can be of service, Mark and I had the following whispered exchange:
MARK: God just told me that he wants you to be of service to me.
ME: God just told me that he wants me to serve you through admonishments.
MARK: I am your spiritual leader. Please respect my headship over you.
ME: [edited for profanity]
more quiet prayer time . . .
ME: Hey! Two more hours until we can watch the next episode of Friday Night Lights!
I hope you are impressed with our reverence. We’re available for spiritual mentoring if interested. Also . . . . how good is Friday Night Lights? We’re just five years late to the party, and totally hooked. Bless our hearts.
