I’ve been tagged!

My brother Glenn over at Glorious has tagged me! 

He's sent me a Faith Reflection Meme:

1.  List three words that describe your faith.

Improvisational, tried, and child-like


2.  Describe one belief about which you are very certain and one belief with which you struggle.

One certain belief? I'll be dead one day.

One belief I struggle with?  I'll be dead one day.

3.  What is your mission in life?

Love God, love neighbor.  To be soul-ful.

4.  Describe one thing that interferes with you authentically living out your faith.

 The feeling that I have nothing to offer the world.

5.  What is your favorite story from the Hebrew Scriptures?  Why?

When a group of youth are eaten by a bear for making fun of the prophet Elisha.  Why?  I don't know but that story always gives me a sadistic chuckle.

6.  What is your favorite New Testament story?  Why?

Pentecost.  Why? God did it then…surely God can do it now.

7.  Describe a meaningful action you took because of your faith.

I drove all the way across the country (from the Seattle area) to plant a church in Charlotte, NC…with a wife and (at the time) 3 kids, no health care, no job prospects, and as we were driving across the state line in to NC we had about $25.00 in our pockets.

8.  Does your faith differ from that of your parents?  If so, how?

Honestly, I don't know.

I9.  Who or what was most important in the development of your faith?

I white brother named "Paul"  from the hills of West Virginia.  This was back in my pre-Jesus days.  He wasn't an 'intellectual' but was bright with the love of God.

10.  Pass it on!  Tag at least two other religious/faith bloggers .

Rod Garvin and Xyborg.
