A Fellowship Tragedy

It happened at Wal-Mart.

Jenny Mae was in the check-out line.  She saw a young lady from church named Denise looking at the books and magazines.  She assumed she was looking at Vogue or Cosmo, but it turned out to be much more serious than that.

Jenny was too far away to greet her and didn’t want to yell but decided to go in the opposite direction from the exit she needed to say hello.  But as she approached, she saw something that stopped her in her tracks.

Denise had picked up a Max Lucado book and was thumbing through it.  Jenny Mae was shocked, confounded, and quickly turned around and hurried out the door.  Luckily she had the cell phone her daughter had given her.

Back in the store, Denise put down the offending volume, and picked up the latest Vogue and headed to the check-out line.  She had no idea of what would happen next.

Jenny Mae quickly called her preacher and set the ball rolling.

    I feel so out of the loop… I had to look up why ‘we’ (using we *very* loosely) don’t like Max Lucado. Now I get the satire 🙂
