A Bit of Humor
Please take a quick look at the following 20 second video before reading the rest of this post which continues after the video. Once you resume reading the rest of this post, keep what you have seen in the video in mind.
First, a little background for those who don't follow politics or live in a different country. President Obama wants to pass a questionable version of a healthcare reform bill which has become a heated and mostly partisan issue. In this portion of his speecch to Congress, Obama, a Democrat, is explaining what the bill will not do. Representative Joe Wilson, a Republican, shouts out, "You lie!" because he doesn't believe Obama is telling the truth. (Rep. Wilson later apologized to President Obama for his rude behavior.)
One morning during the church service our Calvinist Pastor (we're Arminians) announced that he would soon be begin an expository teaching on the book of Romans. A minute later my husband hands me a note. It read:
"When he gets to Romans 9 you must refrain from shouting, "You Lie!""
Needless to say, I struggled to maintain my compsure going back and forth from a poker face to a smile for a few minutes. :-)
Please know that we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our pastor. Hubby was just having a little fun.
