On Hold

by Loolwa Khazzoom • January 30, 2013 • Keeping It Raw

Today I was on hold for a ministry, to request an interview with a bishop. Their “hold music” was a tape of a sermon. After 30 seconds, the sermon tape was interrupted by the announcement from the customer service rep. The whole thing went like this:

“Christian gospel blah blah blah, Holy Father, blah blah blah, and the word of Gd said, ‘All agents are busy assisting other customers. You may continue to hold or press one now, to leave a message.’”
