I led worship again this past Sunday, and I was driving out to church, running a little late. I was just leaving CRW (the married housing where I live) and trying to get onto Rt 1 going north, heading up toward Metuchen. Now, I must say that a year of driving around Atlanta definitely brought out my dad’s Boston-cab-driving skills in me and well, let’s just say I got a little more aggressive. Driving in Jersey doesn’t help me work on that, and so as I was trying to get onto Rt 1, the person ahead of me was not accelerating as one should in the acceleration lane. I don’t know how fast they were going, but it clearly wasn’t enough for me. So I honked.
But I was borrowing our neighbor’s car, and I wasn’t entirely sure that the horn honked (I was listening to music pretty loud in the car) – so I tried it a few more times. And then I was able to get around them and speed off on my way to play guitar and lead people in worship.
I am about 90% sure that the people I sped past were seminarians – who live out at CRW too. And I’m pretty sure this student is in my Calvin class. Oops.
One seminarian-future-pastor honking and speeding past his fellow colleague and future pastor – all so he could get to church and lead in worship.
