As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector's booth.
"Follow me," Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.

Oh, To Hear That Call.
To Drop Everything.
To Follow.

Top 10

Posting your top ten books list seems to be in vogue and in an effort to stay hip I will contribute mine. However, I am in no position to list books in any sort of order. So I will step out in true trend setter fashion and post my favorites from the last year. In mind boggling order they are:
  1. The Knowledge of the Holy by A. W. Tozer
  2. The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning
  3. Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster
  4. Hurt by Chap Clark
  5. Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell
  6. The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborn
  7. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon
  8. Shaping the Spiritual Life of Students by Richard R Dunn
  9. Under the Overpass by Mike Yankoski
  10. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephan Chbosky

Combustable Class

When I took this semester off from school I had no idea I would be trading my pen and paper in for my steering wheel. These are some of the notes from my recent lectures on the road:
  • It is possible to rake from atop an electric scooter.
  • If in a hurry, you may honk twice at an intersection. Once before the light turns green and again after it has turned green.
  • Jesus can purchase billboards.
  • Honor students can't fight.
  • If you have the right of way you must yield to others.
  • If you don't have the right of way, and you haven't taken it you are holding up traffic.
  • To change a diaper in a moving vehicle, set the baby on the dashboard.
  • It is easier to find a Starbucks then a parking space.
  • Yellow ribbons can reproduce, but must not crossbreed with black ribbons.
  • Eye contact with the driver next to you will earn you the finger.
  • Oregon drivers can't drive.
  • The merging speed is 45mph.
  • Only hemroids can tailgate.
