A writing goal I failed at

In my previous post, I mentioned the parameters I set around the Christian content of Unthinkable and Seen Sean? One goal that I tried and failed at:
  • No explicit Christian “message”. When I got to Barbara Penfield’s funeral in Unthinkable, I needed to give John Mason, my (non-Christian, actually lightweight, Americanized Zen Buddhist, meaning he meditates frequently) police detective, something to react to, so we hear a little of the Reformed minister’s funeral sermon before Mason wanders off into his own thought.
What do you think: Did I go too far?
