But
the Counselor,
the Holy Spirit,
whom
the Father
will send
in My Name,
He will teach you
all things.
[John 14:25-26]
****************
Time: Late this afternoon.
Place: The Heavenly
Throne Room.
Characters: The Elohim; the Scribe
Angel.
_______________
"He's..... LATE."

"FATHER........"
Gentle Sigh.
"He's not that LATE."

Gruff glance to
His left.
"Four o'clock does
not mean four...THIRTY!"

Gentle frown.
"Father,
You know He has
trouble with the
TIME zones...."

Gruff frown.
Nod to an angel who
has stuck his haloe'd
head inside the Throne Room Door.
"This.....STAFF MEETING......
is supposed to start
PRECISELY at four
on the DOT!"

Gentle nod to the
angel who has now
trotted barefoot
into the Throne Hallway;
the angel is squinting,
and patting the soft downy pockets
of his long gauzy gown. The
angel trips over one
of the kneeling pillows
strewn on the golden
tiled floor, and his
glasses fall out of his
left gown pocket,
along with a bag of
barbecue potato chips.

Gruff Voice.
"Stop.....FUSSING,
Angel Scribinino! The
Meeting is about to
START! And.....just
WHERE is your Minute-Taking Scroll?"

Gentle Voice.
"Father........Scribinino
has asked Me about
making a request to You."

Gruff Voice.
"WHAT?"

Gentle Voice.
"Angel Scribinino
is requesting, once
more, for a laptop
to take the Minutes....
instead of the Heavenly-Scroll.."

Very Gruff Voice.
"NO.
Absolutely....NOT.
I thought We have
already DISCUSSED
this......BEFORE?"

Gentle Nod.
"Yes.....I know, but...."

"But, NOTHING!"
Gruff pause.
"Angel Scribinino!
GO BACK TO YOUR
CLOUD, AND GET
YOUR MINUTES-SCROLL!
Right...NOW!
You have two nano-
seconds!"

The angel, who is
still standing in the
middle of the Throne
Hall with a folded
Dell Laptop under his
arm, pulls down his
plump face in a woeful
countanence. His
shoulders slump; even
his halo dims a little.

Gruff point.
Even Gruffer Voice.
"GO!
NOW!"

Angel Scribinino doesn't say a word,
but only nods with a
slow and woeful gaze.
He sets the brand new Dell Laptop onto
the silk purple pillow
lying on the gold tile,
and sniffing, turns
about to trot slowly
and woefully out of the Throne Room.

Gruff, even louder Voice.
"And,
TAKE THAT CONTRAPTION
WITH YOU!"

Angelic sniff.
Sniff.
Sniff.

Gentle Voice.
"FATHER........perhaps
We could TRY IT....
for just this one Meeting......"

Gruff Pause.

More Pause.
"Alright!
ALRIGHT!
Just THIS ONE TIME! And that
....THING.....better
not be making any
NOISE....during the
MEETING!"

Angel Scribinino trots
back to the front of
the Throne Room:
face all wet with tears on his plump face.
He kneels, rather clumsily, on the floor in front of
the purple pillow, and begins to plug in wires
and pulling them across the gold tiles
toward the open Throne Room Door.

"What is he DOING?"

Gentle Voice: low.
"Well, Father.....
these computers have
to be plugged in......
with various cables
and such.......it's nothing....."

Gruff Sigh,
and shake of the head. Pause.
"SO?
Where IS.....He?"

Gentle Voice.
"I told You,
Father.....Casper
has a lot of problems
with all the time zones on Earth, and
the time zones in HEAVEN......."

"Well, GET one of
the Messenger Angels
to go GET Him! This
MEETING is supposed to be OVER
by 6 o'clock! Six THIRTY is the Monday Night Choir
Presentation!"

"Well.....yes,
Father,
I KNOW....but,
We can't START...
without the Holy Spirit......I mean....
CASPER."

Gruff Shout.
"ANGEL SCRIBININO!
STOP FUSSING WITH THAT DAMN
CORD! AND, GO GET
ANGEL SYLVESTOR!
HE NEEDS TO FLY
DOWN TO EARTH
TO FETCH THE HOLY SPIRIT!"

Angel Scribinino, who
is crawling across the
gold tiled floor with
several computer cable cords, stops in
his tracks, and turns
around: nodding furiously.
Immediately, he sprouts two rather
inelegant fluffy wings, and takes off
out the Throne Room
Door: calling out
for his friend, Angel
Sylvestor.

Gentle Pause.
"Father."

Gruff Voice.
"WHAT is it NOW?"

Gentle clearing of the
throat.
"We're not supposed
to be cussing in the
Throne Room......."

Gruff Laughter fills
the Throne Hall. Several birds take
off from their resting
places along the Flowing River of Life.
"WELL!
We will just have to
take that UP,
during the MEETING!"

Gentle Sigh.
"Yes,
Father."
******************
It is to your advantage
that I go away,
for
If I do not
go away,
the Counselor
will not come
to you;
but if I go,
I will send
Him
to you.
[John 16:7]
