"Christian" Priorities; Soul-Saving Update
The important thing in this time of hardship and need is to have a float in a parade.
Morrison said it's become more of a challenge than expected to raise float money because many churchgoers have diverted donations to this year's Gulf Coast hurricane victims. He said higher energy prices also seem to be having an impact.
"It's been a tough year," Morrison said, "but we're going to make this thing work."
It's tough being a floatless Christian.
Update: Having been rightly rebuked in comments by NDilly, and thus having been converted to the right priorities, I offer this wisdom, Proverbs 1:20-27
Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the open squares she raises her voice: "How long, you simple ones, will you love inanity, how long will you turn away at my reproof? Because you disdained all my flowers, and my papier maché you ignored -- I, in my turn, will laugh at your doom; I will mock when terror overtakes you; When terror comes upon you like a storm of giant floating cartoon animals, and your doom approaches like a teen pop star singing Broadway medleys in a whirlwind; when distress and anguish befall you."
Heed these words, friends, lest the Lord's Float of Vengeance smite you on life's parade route.
