A Message from Sixth Baptist

I bet you never thought you’d see a headline like that here. I was waiting for the bus to take me to jury duty again this morning when I glanced over at the marquee outside the church across the street: TOO MANY CHRISTIANS ARE NO LONGER FISHERS OF MEN BUT KEEPERS OF THE AQUARIUM. I love it. Of course, all groups have their aquarium keepers.

Jury duty went as expected: We all go downtown, and the parties settle before there’s a trial. The case involved a huge insurance company vs. a Spanish surname victim. I can’t imagine I would’ve been selected anyway. “Mr. Danvers, can you think of any reason why you might not be able to render an impartial verdict in this matter?” Where do I begin? I could just read passages from The Fourth World, I suppose.
