Hope you've now recovered! I have to say thankyou for giving me a laugh. It did get me thinking though...

If faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, how much is needed to stop a leak?
Did you take authority over it in the name of Jesus?
Was it the will of God (in which case you should submit to it)?
Or do you have unconfessed sin in your life that means God won't hear your prayers?
please note, this is all said tongue firmly in cheek


I keep looking in vain for a You-tube clip of this: will my prayer for one ever be favourably answered?

Does that count as sprinkling or immersion?

Where is the tap for the cold water supply located?
And did you 'hurtle downstairs' au naturel?
And as you have not long moved in, what did the neighbours make of all this?
Oh - and had you got a book ready to read in the bath, and if so, what was it? and did it get baptised?

I have read Helen's comments - I think you should strike the tap with the loo brush and shout "Habirem!" in a reverse Exodus 17 moment.


what a story, wish I had read this before I partook in today's activities. Seems kind of ironic for a Baptist to be sprayed but not immersed!

I'm wondering, were you still "au naturel" as you ran through the house to turn the cold water supply off?
Were your curtains closed?
Or has showing Christian witness taken on a whole new meaning in this little part of the NE?


Funny, clever, but not for me. You are too thin to dance about in the shower to get wet, and I'm too fat to sit in the bath with water. Had a similar experience with a toilet cistern ballcock rod which needed to be bent to stop overflow. Copper rod broke and left holding the brass ball as water kept coming, WATER now in the bathroom instead of outside from the overflow pipe. Thankfully my neighbour knew where to turn off the water (I didn't get that in my first degree), and he also worked for the gas board so was able to solder/fix it. Do you pay for your water by meter? If you want to save water you could bath with a friend (preferably one you are married to, who knows how to turn taps on and off,- is it woman's work). Hope you like your new home, and know God's peace and presence in it.
