Last night we had a social night at our Community Group (most of you probably speak churchese so you know that this is our church's way of saying Small Group or Bible Study).
We played Two Truths and a Lie to get to know each other a little better as we spend the next 36 weeks in community.
You know the game. We each write down two true things about ourselves and one lie. Then we read them aloud and everyone tries to guess the one false thing.
Here are my three:
1. I have never been outside the Pacific NW
2. I have run a marathon
3. I am a cancer survivor
Now, the only people who might have even the eentsiest bit of a hard time guessing the lie are the kids who played, and the people whom I met that night for the very first time. And there were indeed a small hand full of 1st timers.
However, I was sitting there with my Haitian child on my lap! And if anyone reads my blog or has one conversation with me is usually quick to find out that I did GO TO HAITI to get my children. 11 weeks ago.
I told everyone that the reason I couldn't think of a good lie is because I am just not USED to lying and it's so against my inner moral compass that I'm just no good at it. Sigh. It's rough being this holy.
Though, very appropriately, I was outdone by the pastor's wife who actually wrote down three full truths. She's apparently holier than me because she couldn't lie at all. Isn't that right, Colonel Sanders?
I really like that game as a Get-To-Know-You. I've been playing it since Jr. High and yet, I don't get bored of it.
Do you like it? Do you have an awesome lie that you always use and stumps people?
I was in the top 100 American Idol contestants. I should have used that!
