The Power of Weakness

Post placeholder image

So I missed another great night out with the girls last night. This I learnt while having brunch after church at Tempo Café. Another friend was supposed to join us but she was too hung over to get out of bed. I should have gone out last night but I stayed in. Partially because I had made plans with my younger sister to help her organize/decorate her new apartment. And so after getting my hair done, I waited at home for my sister to pick me up. She never called. She never showed up. I suppose I could have called her but we agreed on a time earlier in the day to meet up. I’m still surprised that I was stood up by my own sister. So I ended up sleeping away most of Saturday afternoon/night. Pathetic huh?
Speaking of church, it was good to be there today. I thought today’s Minister might give sermon about the war, so was pleasantly surprised when she ended up focusing on the last four commandments. In was interesting to look around the church to see the reactions of many of Chicago’s “blue blood” families as the minister advised the congregation to not commit adultery, not steal, not bear false witness against thy neighbor and certainly not to covet thy neighbor’s house, wife/husband, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s. So my friends in blogland, I suppose I’ll start by not coveting the great time my friends had out last night. And more importantly, I’ll try not to be envious of those of you who have more blog readers and inbound links than I. 🙂
Btw, in case your wondering what Defense Secretary Rumsfeld’s Minister (yes he goes to my church when he’s here in Chicago), has to say about the war, go read sermon title: The Power of Weakness. At a later time, I’ll speak of why my spiritual journey brought me to this church 3 years ago.

    When he talks about ‘not coveting his ass’ is he talking about sodomy or bestiality? LOL!

    I hate to break it to you, but according to my minister, lusting after another is a form of adultery.

    Hey, I can always lust in my heart. If it’s good enough for Jimmy Carter, it’s good enough for me. 🙂

    What would your partner think? Remember no adultery.

    I think I see a loophole: Can I covet my neighbor’s manservant’s ass?
