Cross-cultural miscommunication

Yesterday I had to be out of church briefly to deal with a little issue with Skyler. When I returned, special music was being played--a double feature with "Deep River" followed by "Balm in Gilead," as I discovered. Anaya gave me a whispered update on the proceedings.

"It's time for the song now, Mommy," she informed me. "Don't worry--they said it's a spiritual song." She paused. "Is this Bomb in the Galley?"
