Lent vs. House this was one of the most random things that's happened to me in quite some time.

I'm sitting at my desk doing my feeble attempt at working diligently & a calls gets tranferred to me from a woman who says she's a realtor & needs a clarification from a Methodist pastor. Now...she's talking so fast without taking a breath that I wasn't able to tell her that I am NOT a Methodist pastor, per se, and honestly I was kind of interested what sort of clarification a realtor might need from a Methodist pastor.

Anyway...she proceeds to explain that a man she's working with says he's a Methodist & according to Methodism it's forbidden to do business, in this case closing on a house, during lent.

I didn't think the Methodists forbid anything, really, but I'm pretty sure that this one is an excuse by this guy. However...since I am not authorized to speak as a representative of the Methodist clergyperson I said that although I work at a Methodist church and have never heard this before, I can't say for certain.


Although...maybe since it's Lent I shouldn't be working? Hmm...

  1. I don't know about all that but my belly button lent never stops working and apparently does business all the time because i have enough lent stocked up that i could build a house out of the stuff. does that help?
