An Interesting Day

It has been an interesting day.

Two lawyers questioned me and 16 other prospective jurors, but turned me loose. The case involved a lawsuit filed by an accident victim. She claims the accident caused a herniated disk and shoulder injuries. Her husband is a corrections officer.

The first question was, “Was any juror born in the United Kingdom?”

I was born in Scotland, but I don’t think either lawyer would consider that fact a negative.

Possibly they made their decision based on two facts: (1) I have had two back surgeries, and (2) a current corrections officer and two retired corrections officers attend the church I am serving as an interim pastor.

A few minutes ago, the couple I was scheduled to marry April 19 called to cancel. Their only explanation was they had found someone else to perform the ceremony. Does anyone out there need a marriage certificate?

I must confess it’s hard to deal with rejection, but we all experience it at one time or another, don’t we? Fortunately, Jesus doesn’t reject us. I’m thinking about a children’s chorus sung in Sunday school many years ago.

“Jesus loves me.
This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.”
