1. What’s up? How are you? I am getting for a transition. I have accepted a new call and am 9 days away from my last day at my current call. So I am full of all sorts of emotions; happiness, sadness, joy, sorrow, etc. It is such a weird place to be and so very bittersweet but am ready for this new adventure and to be closer to my momma.
If you were a Panda Bear that could speak O.k., even that is too random for me. You are moving to a new office. You can only take five books with you (pretend there is no thing such as kindle, nook, etc.). What would they be BESIDES teh Bible, which is already written on your hearts, yes? I laughed when I read this question because I am moving and getting a new office (as I stated in the above question). So if I had to pick five books besides the Bible, I would pick (1) Pastrix by Nadia Bolz-Weber, (2) The Wounded Healer by Henri Nouwen, (3)Vibrant Faith in the Congregation by Dr. David Anderson, (4) From Word to Sacrament: The History of the Diaconate–Dr. Duane Larson (5) One of my fave children’s books about being from the Prairie. I am blanking on the title and that bookshelf has already been packed away into boxes so I cant go check.
3. If you had a superpower that could give you a five hour retreat, and you could go anywhere in the world to spend those five hours on retreat (because you have superpowers, ya’ know?), where would you go? There are two places that I would go to; two of my favorite places on Earth; SuperAwesomeBibleCamp (aka Camp of the Cross in Western ND) and Wartburg Seminary. I haven’t been to WTS in so long and that is a holy place that I yearn to be at.
4. What piece of music, song, hymn, etc. are you diggin’ right now? One of my favorite Christian bands at the moment is For King and Country. But I also am diggin’ The Rend Collective Experiment. The Rend Collective reminds me of Mumford and Sons. And of course, Psalm 30 by Ben Larson always holds a special place in my heart too.
5. Use the following words in a sentence (or two): Tangle, dribble, hook, Panda, shark, smile, worry, island. The Panda will dribble a basketball with a smile on his face. The shark will worry especially when he seeks a hook that could tangle him up.
