Outwitting Politicians

Where there is a will, there is a way.

The Californians have done it again. In San Clemente, the local authorities tried to stop skaters from gathering and breaking social distancing protocol. They had 37 tons of sand hauled in and dumped on the Ralph Skate Court to stop any skating.

And it worked. Until it didn’t.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

Now the skate park is being used by people riding dirt bikes. Yep, fun filled hours with jumps, slopes, dips, and 37 tons of sand. Thanks local politicians, you’re the best!

I’ve done a little outwitting the system too. We are still in virus safe distance mode – so churches are adapting. Now social media and drive in services are working, but what about communion? Well, I’ve got that covered too.

This weekend, we will be having communion. I have purchased a couple hundred Juicy Juice grape juice boxes – packets of oyster crackers (couldn’t find matzah crackers pre-wrapped.)

We wiped the individual boxes down then put two boxes and a cracker packet in individual sealed zip lock bags. Waalah – communion is on!

Maybe not as creative as a dunking booth for baptism, or preaching to pews filled with stuffed animals just to feel like you’ve got a congregation, but pretty good I say.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

How have you beaten the system? What creative thing have you done? I would love to know.
