Share Your World 2016 Week 10

We just crossed into double digits with SYW 2016 can you believe it? Only 42 more weeks to go until 2017. Click the underlined link to be transported to a great sharing space at Cee’s Blog.

This week Cee has asked us five sharing questions and given us a warning. The warning is

With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world  which may not always match our reality.

The questions are:

What would you ask for if a genie granted you three wishes?

I think I would ask the genie to make me strong enough to cover all the bases that need covering in my section of the human sea of need. I do realize however that genies are quite literal and I would probably be given a huge baseball diamond in the middle of an ocean along with super speed so that I could run on top of the water and thereby cover all the bases. I think I will just continue to ask God for the strength. He gets the metaphor.

What experiences are most meaningful to you?

I love our times around the altar of the church. There is nothing like being in the presence of God.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

As a young child I wanted to be a zoo keeper, a naturalist, an ornithologist or something else that would keep me near animals and the natural world. From the eighth grade on though I pretty much knew I was going to be a pastor. It was an innate sense I guess you could say…a calling I couldn’t deny.


Complete this sentence:  The best day of my life was….

the day I received Jesus as Savior and Lord. The second best day was the day I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. 

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am so grateful that our lead pastor, Pastor Risto was back to lead staff meeting last week. He had been away and then had Network staff meetings in Sturbridge . So I was running meetings for a few weeks.  This week I am looking forward to ministering in two concerts.
