This week among the Surgeons:
Greg J: I have this recurring dream where it is finals week, and I realize I forgot to drop this class which I have not been attending. Now I must take the final, and I know nothing.
E: Me too! Or I dream I have a final but end up in the wrong room and can’t find the right room.
Dwaine: Likewise, but it is for a foreign language I can’t possibly learn in a few hours.
Greg J: Miss Masters Degree, how does it feel finally not to be in school? What's it like to be free to take a vacation in September?
Selma: Weird. Like I’m not supposed to be here.
Dwaine (onstage in soundcheck): Testing. Testing, One, two, three, four. Testing. Testing. Testing.
Greg (in lobby): Isn’t, “Testing, testing, testing,” kind of scary for students?
Greg J: We should ask them to use some other word, like, “pumpkins”.
E (also in soundcheck): “I don’t want a pickle, I just want to ride on my motor-cicle…”
Greg J: Now there is a guy who cares about kids.
Greg J: School starts Tuesday. Tell me something you don’t like and something you like about school.
Student One: I’m in classes with my friends. But not all my friends.
Student Two: I’m in a class with a girl I think has a crush on me.
Greg J: Is that a like or a not-like?
Student Two: It’s embarrassing.
Student One: Oh, and I’m not in a class with my enemy.
Jesus (after telling some stories): Do you understand all these things?
Followers: Yes, we understand.
Jesus: So every teacher of the law who has been taught about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house. He brings out both new things and old things he has saved.
At The Surge we love doing things together... that includes writing a blog! Here are a few of our main contributing authors:
Our fearless leader, Dwaine is the lead pastor at The Surge. His experience in counter terrorism with the CIA prepared him for ministry and he likes dogs and babies even more than E does.
E (short for Eric Reiss) is the Wingman at The Surge and likes dogs, music, Mexican food, his wife Karen and his little girl Evangeline... not necessarily in that order.
