Starbucks encounter

A lady just came up to me as I sat in Starbucks reading my New Testament theology book.  She said, “do you play professional rugby?” Being as about as confused as a Pharisee talking to Jesus I said “uh no.”  She concluded our conversation with this gem, “good because I think that New Testament book your reading would find rugby demonic.”

And I thought I lived in sheltered world of suburbia…

  1. That is one of the more bizarre things I have heard in recent days. As a follower of Jesus and as a former rugby player in college, I think I can safely say that the two are not in opposition to each other. Sure there are things about rugby that aren’t exactly biblical (i.e. huge post-game keg parties) but really it’s a great sport.
