Congregational Colonoscopy

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. πŸ™‚

    This screams for a Lenten sermon. Something about letting go so we can examine the innermost parts of our being or something. Probably something about humility, too. πŸ™‚

    Sounds like you’re doing well. Glad to hear it! Hi to Allen!
