I hate it when someone takes an unflattering photo of me. Never mind that it is reality, I don’t want reality. I want what’s in my head to be what’s caught on camera. I find a similar reaction in some of the pastors from the churches I write about. They offer to help me write, proofread and edit the article. With bruised egos a couple of pastors have poked back at what they see as mischaracterization and misunderstanding of their worship service. I feel their pain, but I stand with Paul when he says, “Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Col 4:4-6 NIV).
