Babies and bubbly

I don't know if there's a mold for aspirants, but if there is I'm pretty sure I don't fit it. I'm way too animated, too loud, too everything. I am too much of a muchness and not nearly serious enough. Even though I joke about it (I joke about everything) it actually does concern me. For example, my rector David was making a point about the semantics in the BCP.

David: "My liturgy professor at seminary said 'We smash champagne against a ship, we christen a ship. We don't christen children, we baptize them.'"

Me: "Yeah, otherwise you could really hurt that baby."

This post prefers boats to babies, but only because of the booze

It is your very uniqueness, your not fitting the mold, that makes me rejoice (and warn you away from certain seminaries).

You say you’re too loud …
But oft’times silence itself is a sin.

I think you might find at certain seminaries that there are more like you out there. . .and the church needs more of you, btw.
