Jesus Multiplying 5 Loaves and 2 Fish

Disgracepoint from East Coast: Floor Lambs

Another post from the East Coast...

Sister B's email:
Please pack those floor lambs by disassembling them and putting them in boxes.  4 of my floor lambs broke, because I moved them.  You need floor lambs here, as the homes here don't have light fixtures.  So most of them need floor lambs to plug in for lights.

A comment: It's pretty amazing that how many times sister B uses the word.  I think she really wanted to make it abundantly clear what she was talking about.

Disgracepoint from East Coast

With the new East Coast church plants happening, there's been a revival of submissions to disgracepoint.  I am thankful for the gift.  Here's a little something from Gracepoint DMV:

Email: Hi everyone, there is a little breakfast nuke area at the place, so you can bring a small table there for eating.

NOTE: By the way, this person is not talking about a microwave oven.
