Three women standing in a parking lot.
All different. One in her thirties with small children.
One in her fifties with grandchildren.
One in her forties with teenagers.
United by Christ.
Three women standing, talking, laughing and one says, “Did I tell you about the service I attended”?
The other two listen intently.
At this service the pastor starts and says, “YES, LORD. He says, YES, LORD; yes, Lord; yes, Lord.” For half an hour the pastor says, “Yes Lord” in every way that it could be said.
And all that were listening were in agreement. They echoed back, “Yes, Lord”.
The two listening stare wide-eyed. They even laugh at the thought of a thirty minute, two word, repeated message. In jest, they lift arms and say, “Yes, Lord”.
And then the end of the message is shared.
After 30 minutes and all those being led to a united agreement the pastor prays.
I can hear the pin drop now.
The chills as they realize the point.
A spirit of willingness.
A spirit of YES. Yes, Lord.
No matter what the call; no matter what the question.
