|Never have I seen a photograph of a stained glass window|
that could show even a little of the brilliance of the bright sun coming through.
This window appeared like brightly lit jewels across from me this morning!
There was a very large crowd in the Sunday school class, maybe around 55-60 people. It was nice to see some long time members I had not seen in a long time. There were so many new faces there, too.
The program chairman for the quarter gets up before the crowd and announces that this morning she had checked her email and the speaker had emailed her around midnight (last night) that he would not be there this morning. No other excuse was given to us.
A Plan B was put into action for the class lesson and we broke up into 9 groups to discuss later as a class.
In the group I was in, one of the guys said this same speaker was a "no show" when he had signed him up to teach a class. This class member said that on that occasion there was no notice before the class of any kind. This speaker has done this twice to the class. I am understanding to a fault but from what was said, the man offered no excuses.
Is it not ironic that one chapter of Blue Like Jazz is entitled, "How to go to church without getting mad"?
Next week the speaker is to present the second part of the book.
My question is, since he did not show up for part I and does not show up for part II, shouldn't a new chapter be added by next week entitled, "How to go to church without getting really mad?"
A sense of humor sure helps in this world ... a little.
