The subject of this morning’s lecture is God’s Mistakes.

We all know He’s made them. It’s time to stop dancing around the issue and have an open discussion on how best to clean up the mess and get on with things.

Luckily, the majority of these mistakes were made in the category of decorating. Most of them came with a receipt that we still have. And most of them can be remedied by simply closing doors, creative use of tarps and “not using” that section of the house when entertaining.

Yes, there’s still the matter of the seahorse-themed shower tiles. We can’t get rid of those without a third mortgage. If you have to, wear shower sandals. We are mortal. We have limits.

But together, in trust and brotherhood, friendship and team work, we can safely move all of the Almighty’s Emmet Kelly paintings into the garage while he’s in Ohio this weekend.
