and looked at me! I attend a really great small church. About 200 people so its pretty small. We are like a big family, really. Most of us are there on Sunday morning and evening as well as Wednesdays.
Anyhow, before service people stand up and voice their desire for prayer for various people or things in their life. Well, someone requested prayer for their brother who has recently been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. "Something to do with gluten or something."
The whole church turned around and looked/smiled at me! It was actually really sweet. Everyone in my rural church in the sticks are gluten savvy. I don't know, for all the times that we run into people that make things awkward, this was a moment where things were made completely awkward in the best way possible :-)
My friends were joking with me afterwards, "Hey, did you like how the whole church immediately turned around and looked at you?"
It was pretty funny. I love them.
