Whoopsie!  Friday Five

Wow, how is it that it is the second Friday of October, already??
I don't know about you, but this fall has been incredibly FULL, and time is flying faster than I can keep track of it!

So, first things first. 
Take a moment, and take 5 deep slow breaths...

Well, I feel more centered now.
So, let's get on with a Random Friday Five.

1. Tell us a moment of blessing that you have experienced in the past week.

I have two...... I was able to meet for the first time with a group of clergy women in my presbytery.  Yea!

Pedernal Mountain seen from Ghost Ranch NM
I was at Ghost Ranch, NM for study leave this time last week.    

2. Share the first thing/story that comes to mind when you read "When I was a child..."

I Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways.


3 , 4, and 5. If you were the host of a t.v. talk show, what three people would you like to interview on your first show, and what would you ask them.

Barack Obama - I would ask his advice for raising bi-racial children in our country today.  (since I have two of my own).

Brian McLaren - How can we learn to respond to people who understand Christianity differently than we do in a more gracious manner?

Hillary Clinton - what advice do you have for women leaders in today's world?

 Thanks, revkjarla - this was fun!



  1. Ghost Ranch is one of my favorite spots in the world. Glad you were able to be there in the Fall! Even better.

  2. Ghost Ranch must have been wonderful--what a joy! love your interview ideas, too; thanks for playing!

  3. Oh, I long to go to Ghost Ranch...
    You are funny quoting the 1 Corinthians passage....I thought that second, and was wondering when it would show up!
    Great play!

  4. Hillary is an awesome choice! I'd love to spend a few hours with her and just soak up her experiences of the world.

    and, Ghost Ranch - love! Have never been, but looks fabulous.

  5. Ghost Ranch in on my bucket list...with Phillip Newell teaching.

  6. Ah, Ghost Ranch. What a pleasure for you.
    Love your choices to be interviewed.
