on not taking things literally
Vineyard Christian (VC): Can you speak in tongues?
I can speak conversational french, but given the context I don’t think that’s what he meant, he might find this comment flippent or sarcastic and definitely inappropriate for such a serious question
wendy: I don’t think so
VC: let me pray for you
wendy: sure, thanks
I listened to his words as he easily chose things to say to me, a stranger. Words and thoughts as gifts through his language of prayer
