A couple Sunday's ago while in church Claire and I were listening to the parable about the talents. Maybe you know it...
Anyway, Pastor Hank is talking about the one that buries the talent (it was a unit of measure for money) and then brings it back to his master without trying to grow it. Hank wanted to make a point about why the servant would bury the talent so he said that we did not want to "focus on that", referring to the next verse...
Instead, what Claire heard was, that we did not want to "F**k with that"...she lost it. Tears coming out of her eyes. We were very close to the front. Yes, Hank saw her, and while he did exercise good judgement and not point her out, it clearly threw him off his game.
I don't remember the last time I heard a pastor say not to "F**k" with something...oh wait, yes I do, it was never.
I promise that when I deliver another sermon, so time in the future, I will NEVER use that word...deal?!
