While attending a very large church, I was asked to present a portion of a Family Life conference. I spoke to a group of Christians attending the married couples section. I talked about guilt and other issues, especially how we have allowed a dishonesty to creep in our relationships. I seemed in good form that morning, the audience sat on the edge of their seats, couples together holding hands, waiting for every word falling upon them. One of those quiet, atmospheric moments occurred as I was caught up in the dynamic, using Jonah and the whale as an example how couples ought to deal honestly with each other. I bombarded them with the idea that too often married Christians ran from each other and buried their difficulties. In my enthusiasm, I mesmerized the audience with my stare and said, “Don’t get caught in the belly of a whelly”.
Needless to say the serious moment was lost.
