We walked up and down 16th Street, keeping our conversation pretty light. My friend needed to focus on those passing by as he asked them for spare change. We moved quickly as he found it less awkward for people when they could either lower their gaze and move along or decide to help him out with some change.
I noticed we seemed to have some powers similar to Moses as the red sea of humanity parted upon our approach. What was it that we were doing to cause such a reaction?
My friend, aware of the situation, started announcing as we walked, “What if I told you this is my pastor I am walking with? Would that help!?” He loudly stated this phrase over and over for several blocks. Still, it only seemed to increase the biblical power of our sea parting ability, because now, people were moving completely to the other side of the street.
