Houston, TX – “We have been left behind!” Susan Walls anxiously said to herself during the worship service at Faith Bible Church. She looked around and realized the attendance was down by 50 percent from last week, and there was one less singer and guitarist leading worship.
Pastor Jake Scott said, “We have to explain to Susan every summer that she was not left behind. It’s July. People in the congregation are gone on vacation. The Smiths are at Disney. The Jones are in Maine. The Garcias are at Yellowstone.”
After talking to the pastor, Susan indicated she felt a little better but said, “I still have to take Xanax when my sister and I get together to mill our home-roasted coffee beans or when my husband and his brother are working out in the field together.”
