My friend Natalie is in a bell choir (which is awesome). On Friday they had a concert. The bell choir itself is non-denominational, but it is sponsored by the local First Presbyterian Church and so the Pastor was acting as master of ceremonies at the concert - announcing each piece, introducing the soloists, etc. (Just in case you didn't know what a master of ceremonies does.) He also shared an interesting thought about M&Ms. He was talking about how there is a bowl of M&Ms on a table outside his office that some "evil person" keeps refilling, and how he can't seem to keep himself from grabbing a handful whenever he walks by. Then (and I wish I could remember more specifically how he tied these thoughts together, but I can't) he ended by wishing us all a good Christmas season, full of Holy M&Ms that will bring us things like love, peace, joy, and justice. It was then that I realized that, except for justice, I get all of this from M&Ms already. Truly. Should I be alarmed?
P.S. If you have not tried Pretzel M&Ms, you should. Just saying.
P.P.S. I hope "Pastor" is right. I tried searching for the correct term on Google and did some reading on Wikipedia but I had a hard time finding an answer that was clear cut and I was confused. However, I think I am correct in my understanding that "minister" is a general term for a religious leader, so I didn't misuse that, right?
UPDATE: After a bit more reading I found that "Reverend" can also be used, and I apologize but I was not paying enough attention and so I do not know how this gentlemen prefers to be addressed.
UPDATE: I randomly found the program from the concert in my purse today and it turns out that this good religious leader is, in fact, a Reverend. Please replace "Pastor" with "Reverend" in the text above.
