Like most folks, pastors often dream about work. Most of the church/congregation references in my dreams are pretty obscure. If I think about them long enough, sometimes, I’m able to make sense of them.
The one I had the other night, though….If sense can be made of it, I don’t want to know what it is!
It happened the same night I watched the season finale of “Men of a Certain Age,” the one where Scott Bakula talked Ray Romano and Andre Braugher into having their colonoscopies done at the same time. They went to a resort hotel, played some golf, then had the colonoscopies.
That night I dreamed that our entire congregation had colonoscopies done at the same time. Kind of weird, huh?
Not sure what to make of it.
I don’t think I’ll recommend to the Parish Life committee at church that we have a “colonoscopy day”….but I would encourage everyone over 50 to have one. If you have a family history of colon cancer (which I do), have it done even sooner. Once you get past the Ewwww! factor and the disgusting prep, it’s really not so bad!
Peace for your journey.
The end. 🙂
