Some spooky stuff this week.
Plays. Interesting news out of Syria. Apparently, an ISIS-filled production of Tennessee Williams’ filthy play, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, was recently cancelled after the killing of an actor named Al who was playing one of the lead roles. I’m fuzzy on the details, but all I know is that there is much media coverage of the killing of Al “Big Daddy.” Let us keep his fellow actors in our prayers.
Pentecostals. I don’t profess to be a sports fan. I have my hands full keeping up with a myriad of other balls in the air. However, one could not avoid being aware of a recent happening as a part of baseball’s World Series. During a game in our nation’s capital between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros, our President and First Lady were in attendance. Such an honor. Upon the announcement of their stadium presence, the fans in attendance erupted into a cacophony of sound as to rival the tongues of Pentecost. A low rumble of “oohs” underscored a mass uttering of “lockeemuhp”, clearly a word of tongues bestowed by the Holy Spirit. Isn’t it great to see how the Lord moves in such mighty ways?
Pagans. Finally, as if the world around us isn’t scary enough, we are upon the one night of the year where adults encourage their children to disguise themselves and go door to door asking for handouts. Clearly a Democrat celebration. I find the entire affair rather pagan and unchristian. However, in the Spirit (so to speak) of the season, I’m working on my scariest ensemble in which to hand out candy to the children. Assuming I can find a greasy blond wig and a stick of stale Cover Girl, I’ll be answering the door dressed as Kellyanne Conway. Frightening.
