Before any of us pastors really believe people come to church to hear us, remember that our words of wisdom probably not the reason. While enjoying lunch yesterday, I overheard this very loud conversation between two 30-something guys talking about plans for the weekend. These two could just off gotten off of their shift at High Fidelity Records.
Guy 1, "I am going to this thing over at _______ church."
Guy 2, "Isn’t that a church thing? I thought you were an agnostic."
Guy 1, "No, no, no, I’m an atheist."
"But I’m also lonely as f#&k, so I figure, what the hell."
Out of the mouths of single, male, 30-somethings . . .
