The Church of What's Happening Now!

Stone Church by Lizette FitzpatrickThe Church of What's Happening Now!

This doesn't have anything to do with real church(if you are looking for a religious story).

One of my favorite investor clients came up with this phrase a few days ago when we were discussing how to approach someone that was asking way too much for some Lexington Kentucky real estate (In his opinion).

He went through his long list of reasons for the price to be lowered then said, "He needs to come to the church of what's happening now!" I cracked up! I told him that if there was such a church I really wanted to be a member. 

Since then, that phrase has stuck in my head. So I am finding ways to say it when I find a funny situation to use it in. Note: This works best on new clients that haven't heard it before.

Other ways to use it:

After you walk through an extremely messing house you are showing. Say it then discuss the merits of staging.

When trying to get your point across in a meeting.

Works great to add a laugh when arguing with a family member or friend.

Diffuse any heated argument that has become way too serious! Life is short, people need to have fun. 

 

Hope this adds some humor for your day.

You are becoming way too serious!

You need to come to the church of what's happening now!

Lizette, you are so right. People need to get real. People need to come back down to earth, reality, and get out of the clouds.

Absolutely I am laughing at that Church name and still trying to figure out if it was part of a comedy routine from the distant past!

Pat - I agree!

Russell - Flip Wilson was the first one to come up with this phrase I think.

David - Amen!

I can hardly wait for my first opportunity to us the saying.  Matter of fact I am thinking of placing membership in the church.

Lizette sounds like my kind of church. I know a few sellers (and buyers too) who should become members.

Hi Lizette, That is great, I had not heard that one, either.  Thanks for the  humor for the day.

I think I go every Sunday....  but it is a great saying to wake up and see reality.

Lizette, I love it! I can imagine that it does throw people off guard.

I could have used it today on the person who is a first time home buyer, but doesn't really want to pay for a home inspection. :-)
