Okay, forgive the poor attempt at humor here, but I’m not even sure this is funny. Today I got a letter. I won’t tell you who from, but I think it’s too good (or too something) not to share. (My wife says I share too much.) What would you think if you got this letter?
You recently received a letter of invitation to the Pastor’s Update held at _________________ September 10th-12th.
Please disregard this invitation – this is a training/informative seminar for Black Pastors and Planters.
Wait a minute! I already had it on my calendar! Not really, but I am disappointed I don’t qualify. Plus, how do they know I’m not black. I am not aware that I ever indicated that on any documents this organization would have. I’m sure it was a huge error to send out the original invitation, which I don’t even remember receiving, but the retraction is hilarious. So much for bridging the barrier lines in our churches.
Just for that, I’m not going to their little party. You can take me off the list!
