Scripture
Luke 14:25-33
25Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said:26"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple.27And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.28"Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it?29For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him,30saying, 'This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.'31"Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Will he not first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand?32If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace.33In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.

Plot

Something-blue.png

Planning a wedding in a few days is not easy, as Connie learns when she tries to call photographers, florists, and pastors. June Kendall and Whit arrive for the big day, and even George Barclay comes to preside over the service. The friends and family hardly see the couple together, however, for Mitch still has to do final exams at the Academy. The couple’s quiet walk after the rehearsal is interrupted when Mitch is suddenly thrown into a car and driven away!

Connie pursues the car to a pier, yet she gets taken too...in more ways than one. Mitch explains that it was only some of his FBI friends playing a joke. However, Connie recognizes one of the FBI men as the antique expert who bought the compass! Back at their home, the Bourlands reveal that they wanted to support the mission church Joanne talked about and hired the FBI agent to role-play so they could be discreet. Joanne is deeply touched.

Driving away from the incident, Mitch tells Connie how much he enjoys danger. Connie confesses that she "hated what happened," and they talk about their relationship. They conclude that Mitch is certainly supposed to go to Budapest and fight for good, while Connie has a different purpose. Though it's a difficult decision, they decide not to get married. The families and friends still celebrate – at a “We’re-Not-Getting-Married” reception – and the next day Connie sees Mitch off on his international flight. Connie surprisingly feels resolute and unemotional...until she gets into the car with Whit after Mitch is gone and finally surrenders to her emotions.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Discussion Questions

  1. What did Connie’s mom counsel her to do?
  2. Why did the Bourlands use the "antique expert" to give money for the church overseas?
  3. Connie talked to friends and prayed to hear from God. What are some ways you can discover God’s call for your life?

Quotes

Connie Kendall: Little Jimmy lives in D.C.?
George Barclay: Not so little Jimmy lives in D.C. So when Whit told me about the wedding, I just had to come see you.
Connie Kendall: Does that mean you'll marry us?
George Barclay: I'd be honored.

June Kendall: You know, Connie tried to make sushi once when she was a little girl -- that poor goldfish!
Connie Kendall: Mom...

Connie Kendall: Budapest. I don't even know where Budapest is. Sounds like an insect with a different religion.

Robert Mitchell: Give me the tire iron Connie.
Connie Kendall: Mitch? What?
Robert Mitchell: These are friends of mine from the academy. The kidnapping was a joke.

Connie Kendall: So far, our relationship has been 90% action-adventure and only 10% romantic comedy!
Robert Mitchell: Yeah! It's been great!
Connie Kendall: But I like romantic comedy. I like flowers, and walks in the park, and sitting around with friends over dinner—not worrying about if you're coming home at night!
Robert Mitchell: You knew this was never gonna be a normal life.
Connie Kendall: Yeah, but...but somehow, I pictured it in my head as...abnormally normal—like, you'd go off and save the world during the day and then you'd come home at 5:00 for dinner.
Robert Mitchell: Well...
Connie Kendall: But it's not really gonna be like that; I mean, the reality of it all is that you're in a job where you'll travel and move around a lot and—and people will want to put bags over your head and kidnap you for real. And more than that...you love it.
Robert Mitchell: Yeah, you—you're right. And you're the one that pointed that out to me. You said I'm passionate about fighting for good and living in adventure.
Connie Kendall: And you need to be doing those things; I know that. But...I don't want to be the afterthought, the one you come home to occasionally. And I know that even when you're with me, your heart will still be on the field.

Robert Mitchell: Bye, Connie. Take care.
Connie Kendall: Good-bye, Mitch.

John Whittaker: He's gone?
Connie Kendall: Yeah.
John Whittaker: Are you okay?
Connie Kendall: I'll be fine. <begins crying, hugs Whit>
John Whittaker: <hugging her back> Oh, Connie.

John Whittaker: Connie, I love you like a daughter. You're very precious to me.
