Tagged, Again!

Here’s a tag that is actually kinda’ cool. Matt Wilson of Living the Story; Embodying the Kingom fame tagged me on Tuesday, but I’m just now getting around to getting this done. Here’s how it works:

Here is how it works: 1) Grab the book closest to you 2) Open to page 123, go down to the fourth sentence 3) Post the text of the following three sentences 4) Name the author and book title 5) Tag three people to do the same.

The book at hand was recently given to me as a gift by my blogging friend Mark Wilson. It is Under the Unpredictable Plant, An Exploration in Vocational Holiness by Eugene H. Peterson.

The requested text from page 123 is:

Tarshish is a dream, a vision, a goal; Nineveh is mappable, has dust and dirt in the streets, is full of the kind of people you don’t particularly want to spend the rest of your life with (these were ancient enemies, remember), and locates a defined task.

I remind you that Jonah in Nineveh is not an ideal pastor—Jonah is not an ideal anything—but he is a pastor. The Jonah story is gracious in that it does not give us a pastoral model that is oppressive by its weight and demands.

I’ve not had very good success in getting tagees to participate. So, I tag anyone who is willing. I’m hoping that these three will choose to participate, though. I tag Bobby, Bobby and Bobby.

Blessings to all,
-bill

    Thanks for tagging me, Bill. I’ve been out of town — thus the delay in my response.

    OK.

    Grab book closest to me.

    Open to Page 123, go down to fourth sentence and post text of following three sentences: The fourth sentence (actually the fourth listing) is Rabbit Ridge Church of Christ in Bee Branch, Ark.. After that is the fifth listing: the Beebe, Ark., Church of Christ and then sixth is the Evening Star Church of Christ in Beech Grove, Ark.

    Name the author and book title: 2006 edition of Churches of Christ in the United States, the directory published by 21st Century Christian and compiled by Carl Royster in consultation with Mac Lynn.

    Tag three people: Hmmmmmmmm. I tag Erik, Tamie and Dee..

    Sorry, I totally disagree that Jonah is a pastor.

    Hereditary Angioedema

    Hereditary angiodema is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the absence or abnormal function of a protein in the complement cascade known as CI esterase inhibitor. Inhibitors of the complement system are naturally occurring and are capable of blocking activated complement components.
