Picture a young 19 year old who has ventured into his first adult home Bible study group in a very conservative church…
The group is led by a real quality couple and is full of other very nice older people (60’s – 70’s) as well as a few younger ones. But the vibe is connnnnnnservative!
At the start of this discussion on ‘the church’ this brave 19 year old is asked to read the study book out loud to the rest of the group.
He remembers that first sentence so well…
“The church is not an organisation but a huge living orgasm…”
No one laughed – no one breathed a word as the red faced, deeply embarassed 19 year old corrected himself and moved on.
Scarred for life!
