So I was sitting in church yesterday thinking about how formulaic the worship was. It reminded me of a conversation my friend David* and I had. The following conversation insued.
C: This reminds me of the conversation we had at Chic-fil-a.
D: Which one?
C: You know. The one about worship and how is just seems formulaic sometimes.
D: Do you think I should start running down the aisle now or wait til later?
C: That depends. Will you be speaking in tongues at the same time? If so, you might want to let the Holy Spirit vamp the crowd up a little first.
(considerable pregnant pause)
C: I can’t believe I just said that.
