I Survived the Gideon Gauntlet, Fall 2005

The LORD said to the Gideons, "The people with you are too many for me to give the students into their hand, lest they boast over me, saying, 'My own hand has saved me.' Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, 'Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home and hurry away from UNL.'" Then 22,000 of the people returned, and 10,000 remained.

I appreciate what these guys are doing, but couldn't they be slightly more efficient? There were about four of them under the Love Library link alone.

I'm scared to go back out...

I started laughing and then realized I didn't exactly understand at what I was laughing. Care to explain this "Gideon Gauntlet?"

Certainly. Every fall the Gideon organization inundates the campus to distribute New Testaments. This is all fine and well. Except that you can't walk more than five feet without running into another one. In order to get to class, you have to refuse at least five New Testaments.

At least you don't have one in every color, like I do. The Gideons descend upon JBU as well, but then I get all flustered and annoyed that it is JUST the New Testament they're handing out, and not the whole Bible, and end up taking one in defeat anyway.

Lindsey, I have a tough time picturing you flustered.
