I love

You've probably heard of the minister in Texas that was electrocuted while performing a baptism last week. He was in the baptismal pool with a woman and he reached to re-adjust a microphone so the congregation could hear him, then ZAP!
Electricity and water do not mix well at any time.
But the ironic thing about this whole tragic event other than the fact of getting fried in front of your whole congregation is this. Right before the service the minister spoke with Terry Esau, author and creator of the "Surprize Me" faith experiment.
After reading the webpage and hearing Terry talk on the radio last night it sounds like a good plan and I might even get the book and try it.
But I just could help but wonder what was going through that minister's mind the moment the juice entered his hand...
"Surprize me, God!"... Fwap!
Surprized the shit out of him I bet.
God also loves irony. That I firmly believe...

That is a really cool idea. I hope you decide to do it and let us know how it goes....

And yes, I think at times that if there really is a God he must have a really caustic sense of humor.
