The conversation was pretty fascinating. I had only known them for minutes, literally. It was the kind of conversation that only happens here, in DC. Most of you know “them,” of course.
It’s a miracle of God that somehow (not really) we talked about Wednesday Morning Bible Study and service times at St. Alban’s.
“Shoot! Both times are problematic for me because…” (elaborate in your mind great and very important reasons – like saving the world – for not doing church).
Boldly I asked (there was wine) the forlorn if they were always so good at making excuses.
Luckily for me there was a close friend of my new conversation partner listening in. “Usually not,” they chimed.
