Nice and Big
Lisa and I went to the grocery store this morning. Here's a conversation I had with someone we met there: Him: "Hi! I know I said I was going to come to your church. But I went and tried XYZ church, and I really like it. It's nice and big!" Me: "It is nice and big!" Him: "Well, it's just so... big. I liked it." Me: "Good. I'm glad you found somewhere you like." Him: "Oh, well. I like your church too. I like them both. It's just that, it's just that that one is so nice and big!" Me: "It sure is! Listen, you don't have to explain it to me. Whatever turns your crank. I'm glad you're happy there." Him: "No, I don't mean that. I love your teaching, but that other church is just so nice and big. I liked it." Me: "I'm glad you liked it. You don't need to explain to me. I understand." Him: "Well, maybe I'll come to both. You know, your's one week and the other the next week." Me: "Sure. Whatever you want to do. We don't take attendance. You're free to come and go." Him: "Ya. It's just that the other one was so... so... nice... and so big!" Me: "It sure is. See ya." Him: "Yup. Bye!"
