For the record, every word I am about to share is true! Because of the date today, some might think this is an April Fool’s blog post. (I hear there are blogs that take April Fool’s Day way too seriously and run a series of silly posts! I find that offensive, but to each his own.) This is not an April Fool’s post.
A week ago, Frank Page was in our church for an evangelism rally – the best evangelism rally I’ve ever been to. He was insightful, funny, poignant and practical.
Then, afterwards, my wife slugged him!
Well, maybe not slugged… but she definitely hit him as I watched in horror!
The conference was over and Dr. Page was getting ready to leave. Jenni was talking to him about some of the things he said, and getting some information from him when it happened. He made a joke (as I have done often) and she hit him on the arm (as she has done often to me). I stood there in horror and amazement thinking “My wife just slugged the president of the Executive Committee of the SBC.” I saw my chances of ever join the ruling elite in the SBC go up in smoke as my wife physically assaulted the good Dr. Page.
I’m not sure what it says about Dr. Page, but he did not seem offended in any way.
I am planning to be in NOLA for the SBC this summer. Those of you who would diss me, insult me or in any other way annoy me need to realize something.
I’m bringing my wife!
