I know. We’re sick of it already. Sick of it in a “I don’t want to hear about Palin anymore, but I just can’t help researching everything I can about her!”

So, some links to satisfy that craving. Good for you links, not gossipy ones πŸ™‚

We spotted a couple of reporters at church on Sunday. Turns out they were writing an article entitled, “A visit to Palin’s church” (thanks to Amber and Pam for the link). When I saw them Sunday I began rehearsing in my mind what I would say if I were asked for an interview (prideful? no, not me!). The interview played out in my head like this:

Reporter: So, have you attended here long?

Janeen: We’ve been coming to WBC for nearly 6 years.

Reporter: I noticed your church offers coffee. Do you have a favorite flavor of creamer?

Janeen: Actually, two weeks ago there was some Coconut creamer available. It rocked the house!! Oh yum, so good. <—– IF ANYONE FROM THE CHURCH STAFF WITH CONNECTIONS READS THIS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAT MORE COCONUT CREAMER WOULD BE AWESOME. YOU MIGHT EVEN ATTRACT MORE PRESS WHO WOULD BE DRAWN TO THE CHURCH WITH REPORTS OF THE YUMMIEST COFFEE EVER.

Reporter: Wow, sounds intense.

Janeen: Yeah, I loved it. But not as much as I love my God. Let me tell you why…

———Short Interlude while Janeen lays out the gospel to the Reporter guy by using the Ten Commandments to point out our sinful nature and our need for a Savior———

Reporter: Thanks Janeen. You’ve given me some stuff to think about. One last question. Do you see the Palin’s at church often?

Janeen: Uhhhhh, well, in my 6 years here I’ve never seem them. But It’s a big church. I’m sure they go here, uh….

After debating with myself for a few minutes I decided I would have to graceously decline to comment if approached. It wouldn’t look good in print to have me saying that I’ve never seen the Palin’s before. Because it IS a big church. And I guess they go to second service. But, everyone knows the holiest people go to first service πŸ™‚ Luckily for everyone, I wasn’t approached. Big surprise.

The other link for you is from a blog I follow entitled Making Home. Yesterday the author wrote a post about how some Christians are debating if Palin’s candidacy is biblical. It’s not something I had thought about. Although not drawing her own conclusion, the author warns of trying to find proof in the Bible of whatever you want to be true (eisegesis).
