On Stoners

Three apartments down from me live a bunch of stoners. And they have a patio. When Nyssa and I had first moved in for the summer, they could often be heard out on the patio until the morning hours yelling about stuff and carrying on about Pink Floyd and how stoned they once got. (No word of a lie; I know it seems stereotypical, but it is true)

It seems they take a winter sabbatical starting in November (presumably to brush up on lesser known Floyd albums) but with the warmer spring temperatures, I noticed them today back on the porch.

My senior pastors tells me I should make friends with them and tell them about Jesus. I think Jesus would draw the line at 12:00am shouting.

Anyway, all this to say... wish me luck this summer.

Peace,
-C.D. Clements

Your senior pastors are right, but man, it is hard to talk to stoners. Back in the bad old days, I was one and thought I was so full of wisdom. Unfortunately, it was not wisdom I was full of.

God bless you.

You should minister to your stoner neighbors at 9 a.m. on Saturday when you knock on their door and offer them coffee and muffins. When you are evangelizing the first thing is to get their attention, doncha think?

Funny back in the day stoned or straight I still believed and still do...funny how people get all religious and think they know everything about how people should act.

On March 9th you post saying "remember not to talk about others in public places." On April 1st (less than a month later) you're blogging about your neighbors on a very public blog and have labeled them as "stoners" based on THEIR conversations. Am I correct in assuming that you're a preacher? Hm.
