Meet Him/Her in Church (Not That You’re Looking)

From Minneapolis Correspondent Donovan…

5:00 p.m., Nativity Church, St. Paul

Due to my insomnia, I’ve been attending a 5:00 p.m. service on Sundays at a nearby church.  Fortunately, there is one nearby that offers such a thing. 

Now don’t misunderstand me.  I don’t come here looking for a “good one,” but if I were unexpectedly to find one, where better than someplace where everyone is the same faith as me?  It would sure make Mom happy if I found a nice Catholic girl.  And me, too. Today is an especially good time to find someone.  It’s the thick of March Madness.  I’m not a basketball fan, or even a televised sports fan of any kind.  One could safely assume that most of the potential good ones at this service really don’t care much about March Madness.  Or basketball, for that matter.  Perfect for me.  The service is sparsely attended and a few attractive specimens are present (not that I’m looking).  

After the final blessing, the church empties out quite fast.  Unfortunately, too quickly to even say hi, much less strike up a potentially meaningful conversation with someone.

Church – 1

Good one rating: potentially awesome, but not this time.

A married couple, married to each other later in life, shared their “how we met” story. The lady was teaching an adult Sundy school class, and the man was visiting for the first time. From the man’s perspective, the lady made a beeline for him right after the lesson ended. (She tells the story a bit differently, of course.) In the woman’s haste, she slipped right when she got to him. So from her spot on the floor, she said, “Hi, my name is Beth. I need a friend. Wanto to go to lunch?”
