I said crap in church today.
And not just one of those under my breath “Crap, where’s my nametag?” craps. Or like a “Crap. What IS that woman’s name?” crap.
I said it into the microphone, because that’s how I roll.
I do the prayer in front of the whole church all youth-director style these days during first service, and before the prayer, sometimes I like to talk about God and whatnot.
And recently a friend of mine told me that the root of the word worship is dig, and that when we sing the opening songs (aka, WORSHIP) it’s a time to dig up all the crap in our lives and let it go so we can focus on God.
It’s something that stuck with me, so I decided to share.
All, “So, ya, it’s a time to dig up all the crap up our lives and let it go…”
I didn’t even think twice about it.
Or even one and a half about it.
But then, after service, I guess it got around that CRYSTAL SAID CRAP IN CHRUCH.
I’m told “baggage” might have been a better choice or words.
I don’t know about you, but the crap in my life doesn’t look anything like luggage though. So ya.
It’s probably youth leader 101 or something though. “Find a way to say crap in chruch while talking about how awesome God is.”
A+ for me if it is.
