    Can I play your singing your song on my podcast? Please, please, please? I’ll have to sing the same thing the next time I have a prospective date.

    Your story of the donut reminds me of this person, at my old church, who asked God if she should buy a car of a particular color. She then opened her Bible, pointed her finger randomly at a verse, and the verse had something to do with the color that she had asked about.

    Let’s hope President Bush and his cabinet have tried similar tactics when deciding such things as foreign policy,, medical care issues, and natural disasters!

    Joe, I spoke with Marvin about this and first of all he said to tell you that he says hi and has been praying for you.

    He then told me that is fine if you share his song with your listeners. He wants to remind you that the glory, as always, goes to God.

    He also launched into a tirade of sorts about the recent lack of comments and worries that people have gotten offended by his committment to preach the Gospel. I assured him that people are busy and as far as I know no one is offended (surprisingly enough).

    He then asked me what he should wear for his date on Sunday. I told him I am not the kind of gay guy who gives fashion advice but that whatever he wears I am sure will look adorable on him.

    He then told me he would pray for me and got quickly got off the phone.
    Ah Marvin!

    Please let Marvin know that I only give the glory to God when it comes to him. And thank him for his permission. And, as always, I continue to pray for him, too.

    yeah Joe, I’ll tell him and I am sure he is still weirded out by you mentioning him to some sort of false queer quaker deity. Ah, don’t you just love tribal religions.

    I’m really glad for Marvin that he’s got a date. I’m quite concerned about the jelly doughnut rather than the glazed ring doughnut thing. Remind him it’s like Gideon asking The Lord to damp the fleece but The Lord soaking it in Olive Oil instead…

    Take care.
    love K3n.

    p.s. Please excuse the colourisation of this post by its UK English spelling.

    Jelly donuts, glazed donuts, hmm… something going on there. It must be a message.

    I don’t think anyone’s offended by Marvin preaching the gospels, but that a lot of us just don’t know what to say to it. OK, you love Jesus. Um… good for you! See the game last night?

    About the date, Marvin, I hope it goes really well and that you feel comfortable with each other and can build a friendship without any pressure.

    Good luck Marv!

    Hi Marvin–
    So touched you’re thinking of us–I’m okay.


    PS: Regular doughnuts have nothing in the middle. Jelly doughnuts have a filling. Soon is filled with the Holy Spirit, don’t you get it?
