Scored most of a bucket of leftover movie popcorn to help me unwind this evening. I know just the excerpt to commemorate this pleasant surprise.
Usually for the first twenty to thirty minutes of listening for God’s arrival, we’d have this beautiful unbroken silence. But then we’d have some yokel getting moved by The Spirit and ruining everything, standing up and talking all purply poetic. The Spirit having run its course, whoever had risen would sit back down and we’d have another silent stretch. As with heating a batch of popcorn, where the pops come closer together the further along you get in the process, toward the end it would get so every third minute somebody was getting moved by The Spirit, and my momentum toward Realization would be shattered once again before I could recapture the completeness of my former silent state.
