For Whovians…particularly Vineyardite Whovians…Time And Relative Dimension in Space

Talked to a couple after our 101 “welcome to the family” class tonight about baptizing their eleven-year-old daughter at the river this month. They moved here in June. Their first Sunday here was when I was teaching. And that convinced them to stay.


Something profound I said?
Some prophetic word from the Lord?
A deep spiritual look in my eyes?


I was wearing a Tardis on my tee.
They have yet to invest time in watching Doctor Who – I think they’re afraid to get started, knowing how much is there – and I don’t think they know where to start.

But they know about the Tardis.
And if the guy teaching up there is wearing a tee with a Tardis, then this is a place they can let their hair down and perhaps find a home. They saw a place filled with possibilities.

But no, I couldn’t bait them to say “A place that’s bigger on the inside.”

    Awesome!!! =D

    A few months back, Em came up with the idea of having a t-shirt and baby bib (for our next child, not me) created saying, “Daddies are like bow ties – they’re cool” (with a picture of a bow tie of course). =P

    I know someone else who stayed at the Vineyard because they saw you, and several members of your family, sleeping against the back wall during a service. Your sense of freedom, and the fact that you aren’t run out on a rail for it. seems to attract people.
