A Step Away

People love a scandal. They love the juiciness of stories and gossip. So, in what I'm about to tell you, my desire is not to gossip or tear someone down.

He was a great worship leader. He sang really well, picked very good songs, and was very organized, as far as I could see. He even spoke some really intense stuff about our faith sometimes. From the outside, Larry was pretty much what every senior pastor wants in a worship leader. Now, Larry isn't really his name, but for the sake of privacy, I'll hold back on his real name.

Legit Granny

My grandma passed away about five years ago. She was just about as cool as a granny could be. She used to arm-wrestle my brother, give great back scratches, and had the strength of an ox. She grew up in a Communist country essentially as a peasant and had lived her whole life intimately knowing what back-breaking labor was.

In a word, my granny was legit. In fact, she was 2 legit 2 quit. (Yeah, I just laid down a Hot Rod reference. What of it?)
