Tiny Tuesday – “The Power of The Lord”

17 Jul

“Arise, sinners,” roared the pastor from the pulpit, flecks of zealous saliva spattering the front row. “Arise, and feel the power…of THE LORD!”

The congregation stood. His body was racked with spasmodic jerking. His white hair was wild as a trembling finger shot out at the pews. “WITNESS what GOD has GIVEN ME!”

Framed by holy light, he rose upwards, his arms outstretched. The choir rang with furious power and the faithful fell to their knees.

Then his harness snapped, and he hung awkwardly to the side, spinning in a slow circle.

The flock’s eyes narrowed, and the pastor laughed nervously.
