Overheard at Thanksgiving lunch


We gathered the students for a rare trip out to the ‘burbs, so they could see the trees change colors and celebrate an early Thanksgiving together at a member’s home.

College student: I freak out my parents every once and a while and tell them that I’m going to go to seminary.

Me: REALLY? That’s great! Are you serious? Are you going to do it?

CS: No. I couldn’t.

M: Why not?

CS: Because… [she explains the situation at her home church]… and so sometimes it seems that being a pastor’s all about keeping the lid on the crazies. I have no patience for that.

M: [blank stare]
