Servant Evangelism in a zip?

Check out this article about the TSA now requiring liquids and gels to be in zip-lock bags: New TSA rules relax carry-on restrictions.

The clear bags became a hot commodity at U.S. airports Tuesday as new security rules kicked in allowing air passengers to carry small amounts of liquids and gels for the first time in more than six weeks. Such items must be sealed in a quart-sized or smaller bag, leaving many passengers scrambling to find something they might have used to freeze their leftovers the night before.

Ginni Dewbray and her husband, stuck in a security line at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, had to come up with a bag or lose a small bottle of Oil of Olay lotion. Edward Dewbray had to ask several travelers before he found one.

“It’s an inconvenience,” Ginni Dewbray said. “If they’re going to stand there and ask you to have plastic bags, they should give them out. They’re not that expensive.”

I can just see folks with the cool “The Church Has Left The Building” t-shirts handing out zip lock bags at security lines. Awesome isn’t it? Talk about meeting people and relieving a large amount of hassle and frustration.

Just make sure they’re quart sized or smaller!
