Can anyone explain to me why the group ‘Christian Men Together for Scotland – Charlotte Chapel” will insist on writing to me addressing the letter: ‘Dear Minister / Men’s group leader’ and continues ‘This will be a Men Only event… we would ask that you let all men within your church know of the event – now, and instil in them, the vision and excitement, for the potential of all our non-Christian friends having their lives changed as a result of Tony’s visit.’ (Tony is the speaker. Once a World Kung Fu Champion and bloodthirsty, violent man, now a…. well you have to go to find out, I guess.)
The letter ends ‘We would value feedback on whether you (and/or others) would be able to make any of the above dates and would therefore appreciate if you would let the planning team know of your attendance by return email to…’
Well much as I’d love to attend, Rodney Stout, associate Pastor, I’m afraid you have prevented me from doing so by virtue of your first paragraph. But if you have a girly night, then do let me know.
You couldn’t make this stuff up.
(By the way, the picture is not of Christian Men Together for Scotland but another bunch of churchy men.)
