So Much for the Tigers, I'm Annoyed, and What's On Tap

It's looking to be about over for Detroit. They've blown two games against Cleveland, and if it had been against anyone else I'd be more upset. And I mean "blown," because both nights they got off to strong starts and then their pitching messed everything up. And Robertson is pitching against Sabathia today, so things won't get any better. So congrats to the Indians. I'll be rooting for you throughout the postseason.

I'm annoyed. An event occurred yesterday morning that reinforced all my negative thoughts about weddings. Basically, I was all but baldly told that all I need to do next month is show up, say some prayers, and sign the certificate, and don't bother me too much in the meantime. One-half of the couple considers it a chore to even meet with me once beforehand. We had about a 10-minute argument about it. I suppose that I can be thankful that this person was up front about it. Maybe I should put a Justice of the Peace on speed dial...

I haven't exactly been a frequent blogger lately. But coming up is a full-out review of Take This Bread, something about showing Jesus to others, and, as always, the Roundup.

Are either of these folks a church member? If so, then approach the church council and tell them you have a problem. If not, open the door and show them the courthouse.

I agree. This is an appropriate time for you to suggest that you are not the right person to perform their ceremony and/or to convene the pastoral relations committee to review the scenario. If it's a church member, they should not dictate policy to you and it's an issue you should deal with ASAP; if it's not, activate Speed Dial #JOP and offer the couple lovely parting gifts.

I can relate to this: I have a very pretty church that people want to use for marriages. But then are taken aback when I tell them that I will not marry them unless they attend three marriage preparation sessions. I have even been told "we don't want all that religious stuff". And you come to a pastor to tell him that?

A Yankee Fan drive-by? Here? That's a first...

Of course, they've only been promising that #27 thing for the past 6-7 years...
