A True Delight

Love these dudes. People should listen carefully to their words. They each have a deep abiding wisdom which comes from personal and ministry experience, and probably the Holy Spirit too.

However, you can literally smell their body odor over the air waves.

My favorite animal.

Sloths get five stars, no question. REASONS: 1) Their finger nails. 2) Their top speed is 1 mph. 3) Have you ever seen them try to cross a road? 4) What about that opening scene from Planet Earth Season 2? Beautiful. 5) Just trust me.

I love this podcast - and the book "The Giving Tree"

I love this podcast.

I like how it's a simple short book and seems like nothing but a children's story, but you can dive in a learn a profound lesson even late in life. The boy loves the tree.. and the tree loves the boy. How beautiful!

Each stage of life brings a new challenge to the relationship. But the tree refuses to stop giving. The tree sacrifices everything for the boy.

There of course is the question of whether or not this is a story of unconditional love or an example of the unfettered selfishness that is the human condition. I would submit to you that it is, indeed, both. This book stands at the crossroads of how life should be and how life truly is and like many crossroads, people find themselves uneasy when looking down both streets simultaneously.

Thanks for the podcast and for helping me to admit I'm not a real pastor. ;)
