Readers have sent me some items with which I cannot part and that I would like to share with you. To wit:

“God First Ministries” of Chicago has a bulletin addressed to “Dear Public Service Announcer.” It reads, in part:

GFM “is holding its annual Brides of Christ Retreat, ‘Come Away My Beloved!’ Song of Solomon 2:10.” The retreat, held at a hotel near O’Hare airport, “allows men and women to enhance their spiritual growth.” The feature: “The guests participate in a beautiful wedding, spend an intimate weekend with the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ.” Registration includes hotel accommodations, meals “and a complete wedding package.” Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, we assume. Are the rooms singles or doubles? Is it a single-ring or double-ring ceremony? Let me get this straight: men spend an intimate weekend with the Bridegroom?
