today on, things that improve my life

In her sermon last night, Marla said something was "insane" (as in, "ridiculous," whatever) and I opted not to interrupt her, but I did want to bring it up to her. So I emailed her this afternoon. She replied:
Thanks for this, Elizabeth, and I'm glad you brought it to me... this is one potential danger of having no script (or going off of it). You're absolutely right, and I'll work harder on it.

And you can always interrupt if you feel like it (at least that's my position for you interrupting me... we might want to give Nizzi a honeymoon!). I think it's good for us to model holding one another accountable in a public way (and good to model receiving constructive criticism that is RIGHT ON in a graceful, humble way).

So next time (if you feel like it), just call me out!
