One of the downsides of having a Greenbelt email address is that I receive more than my fair share of spam. But today's email brought a real surprise.
[We] recently visited your website. It is obvious that you have a very dynamic ministry and we feel that your particular ministry would add diversity to our radio broadcasts.
Cool! Someone likes us!
[The station] offers a unique style of programming that combines commercial free music with sermons\bible studies and comedy
Er, OK. I guess that's not a million miles from Greenbelt. The email goes on:
We would like to extend an invitation to you to be one of our featured comedian artists on our network ... We also would feature you in our newsletter that gets distributed weekly to Pastors Worldwide.
Now I'm confused. They think Greenbelt's a comedian? Just how closely did they look at the website? I think I'll pass on the offer.
Still, it raised a chuckle this morning; maybe that was the point.
