Not long ago while at a local pharmacy, the young lady behind the counter noticed I lived in Oakman. "I grew up there and graduated OHS," she said. Then she mentioned folks she went to school with and we made some friend connections. Then she asked if I knew one of the former principals of OHS. When I admitted I did, she laughed and told me to tell him that he was a "two-bagger."
I remember when the loyal New Orleans Saints fans wore bags in the 1980's. They were protesting a poor performing team. There was also a stand-up comedian in the late 1970's who wore a bag on his head and called himself the "Unknown Comic." These people wore bags to hide their identity for one reason or another.
I wonder how many bags we wear? Do we have bags that we wear to hide our Christianity from our co-workers, schoolmates, or fellow athletes? Do we have bags we wear when we are around other Christians to hide who we really are? Can we become a "two or three bagger" just to cover ourselves in the case that someone begins to tear away one bag? Are we ashamed to let people know who we really are?
