Taking This "John The Baptist Thing" Too Seriously

Today I got an email from our Baptist Associational office. The request was simple. Another pastor wants to borrow our fake guillotine. You know. The one that doesn't really work.

Now, I know I'm still relatively new at Towerview but I've been in every room, every closet, every nook and cranny. I've yet to come across a fake guillotine.

So I did what any self-respecting Baptist pastor would do. I emailed but my apologies. I explained that our guillotine was real. I added, "Go real or go home."

I mean, is that asking too much? If they don't like it ... let them eat cake!

Fake guillotine, that is wierd. Next might be a fake noose or your fake electric chair (I would not part with that though).

Maybe I am thinking this wrong maybe they are doing a magic show. Do you guys have the saw the lady in half box, maybe that will do? At the least you guys could catch them a rabbit!

The pastor who requested the guillotine is a real cut-up.
