The Best Plans . . .

In a week (June 5-8) we will again return to Waco for Annual Conference 2011.

Several years ago at Annual Conference in Waco, our United Methodist attempts at inclusivity took an amusing turn. Off to one side of the front of the sanctuary of FUMC, Waco stood a woman using sign language to convey the worship words to the hearing impaired. This was very good.

Suddenly the woman who was praying at the pulpit began to pray in her native tongue which happened to be Korean. I watched the sign language interpreter melt down as she tried to figure out what to do next.

Sometimes the best plans just don’t work out.
