That Old Time Religion


This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ (Jeremiah 6:16)

.   .   .

The package said the rechargeable
screw gun was the latest in
technological advancement and
would revolutionize the way I
put screws in anything so
I bought it thinking a revolution
might be at least amusing but
the thing was protected by a
space-age poly-something or other
which wouldn’t tear away or
pry apart so I dug in the
junk drawer for my medieval
screwdriver with the rust-flecked
prong and was just about to
gouge my way to revolution when
the double-digit receipt made me
think of how many weeks’ worth of
good coffee I could buy for the same
amount of money so I put the
unscathed poly-sealed technological
marvel back in the bag and
returned it after which I bought a
half-pound of Starbucks then made
myself a fine cup of coffee and
to celebrate used my old screwdriver
as a stir stick.
