Fear paced back and forth along the far wall of the building as contentment lay sleeping upon an old torn blanket in the corner, its tail casually swatting at flies.

The congregation would wait quietly for the continuation, as they had been instructed to do so for  many years already.

City to city, the Messiah just kept letting the crowds down.
