A baseball term referring to a baserunner attempting to get to another base or usually two or three and the long run ends with a very short slide, usually being called out. We use that term in Anesthesia and I'm sure others also using that term.
Last Sunday's worship service featured a "story teller" as the sermon. Most of the program was his attempt to be funny but he finally got around to a brief moment of serious talk and blessing. I go to worship and be fed, not to hear someone trying to make me laugh.
Adult services should feed me and to allow me to focus on God's Gifts! Guess I'm looking for a short run with a long slide.
