lol!

our pastor's wife told of an african family that started to attend their church in cali. they were told pretty clearly by one of the elders that while their visit had been pleasant, there was a church down the street that they'd probably be more comfortable in. the patriarch of the family (apparently it was a large extended family) replied, "oh, no. we're quite comfortable right here, thanks." and they stayed.

i think that church ended blowing up, though. apparently this african family wasn't the only one that came and stayed. i think there were several families joining that really liked the pastor and the feel of the church. but there was a stalwart older crowd that felt like "their" church was being overrun (not only by the newcomers but by their pastor as well) and they eventually ran them all off (including the pastor).
