Speaking of the Tiger Part 2


Friend: So there's "Sister G" and when the subject of conversation walked into the room, she says "Speak of the tiger..." 

[laughter]

Brother W: Oh!  I get it!  I figured out why Sister G said "Speak of the tiger"

Friend: Yeah?

Brother W:  It's because in China, tigers are related to dragons!

Friend: ...but the saying is "Speak of the devil"

Brother W:  Um, yeah, okay, just scramble that.

Friend: Did you just say "scramble that?"

Brother W: Oh no...!!... Why??...

Friend: Let's just say this conversation has multiple problems.

This is one of the very first posts of Disgracepoint, featuring Pastor Manny, who is soon to plant our Gracepoint Los Angeles church on the UCLA campus.

Although the video is old (from 2007), the statements made in the video still prove to be true, perhaps even more so now than ever.
