6. No shit.
And, I might add, I find her manner of speaking to be MOST annoying.

We...must...stand...for...ever...in...his...grace...

:wtf:

The gentleman singing "Amazing Grace", however...beautiful to hear!

8. Maybe I'm better at ignoring the mumbo jumbo
than you. I mean why watch it if you're not expecting mumbo jumbo from a church service :D
I'll take away the wolf analogy (although I already know it) and the beautiful singing.

Lovely voice indeed.

9. Some of the prayer deliveries were quite good, but the music was better!
I liked how it moved from one faith to another...the briefer the better (less is more?) ;)

10. I can't recall a word that most of them said
I'm only interested in the politics of religious theater so I actually heard the wolf analogy. The music was lovely. :D

11. Please share the angry wolf analogy!
I missed it, came into the one word-by-word delivery (Sharon?) followed by "Amazing Grace" and the other prayers.

What was the wolf analogy? Pretty please!

13. Not exactly the version she told, but here it is.
An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life...

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

"One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.

"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

"This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf will win?"

The old chief simply replied,
"The one you feed."

12. Rev. Sharon Watkins!
She is the first women president and general minister of the Disciples of Christ church, my church. My brother has worked with her and she is an amazing women. I was so thrilled when I heard she was picked.
