While I was driving around town last week, some guy cut me off in traffic. Happens all the time, but he was particularly aggressive, and I felt seriously endangered. After I slammed on my brakes and restarted my heart, I got mad. Very mad. I didn't notice the make or model of the car. I can't even tell you what color it was. But one thing is etched in my memory - the church logo sticker on the back window.
I realize it's irrational to be angry at the church - the church wasn't driving dangerously. But it started me wondering if we have an additional responsibility to behave ourselves when we have an organization represented on our car windows and bumpers. When I irritate drivers on the road, do they hold it against the Lake Highlands Wildcat Boosters or the Solar Soccer Club? Do they curse the University of Missouri or Texas Tech? Something to think about.
