Waiting On You

18 Apr

As a parlor trick, I like to ferret out fellow former Pentecostal kids at dinner parties and bars. It’s only happened twice – so I suppose it’s not such of a much as parlor tricks go – but both times were special. I met one man who had also had hands laid on him when he had scarlet fever. He saw his mother crawling on the ceiling. That did not happen to me.

He told me that he could never give up on God because his father had believed so deeply in Christ. I told him that I could not believe in God because Christ had so profoundly failed my father. So it goes.
