A little Tuesday fun........

Okay....so Heather (Applehead's cousin - not my sister Heather or the Heather from my old Church....there is sooo many of them....) tagged me to do this little meme (where did that word come from anyhow?). I did it once before but I'll use a different book this time. In fact I didn't have a book near me since I have been on this little cleaning spree and took all the books off my desk and placed them on my newly cleaned off book shelf. I decided I would turn my chair and whichever book I spotted first, I would use. It turns out to be a good one. It is red. I think that is why it caught my eye.

Here is the meme....

Grab the book closest to you.
Open to page 123 and find the 4th sentence.
Post the next 3 sentences on your blog.
Name the book and the author.
Tag three people.

"The Revolution" A Field Manual for Changing Your World edited by Heather Zydek

If I preach on Sunday morning about those that the church helps, if I say, in effect, "See! We love poor people because we have a low-income housing project and a clothing donation box. We love the hungry because we have a soup kitchen. We love unwed mothers because we support an adoption service and provide counseling," then the congregation will say what a good Christian I am and shower me with "God bless you."

But if I follow Jesus' instruction to "love your enemies," praise from the congregation lessens just a bit.

Well....Pooh. Who wants to love their enemies? I haven't actually read this book but now I think I am going to get around to it. It really belongs to someone else...someone I wasn't planning on talking to again. I need to return it....I suppose. I'd rather avoid it. Oh the irony.

Okay....I tag Correction G, Toys R Us kid & Kellen.

Good choice! Red is my favorite color! I like that excerpt. Makes you wonder what is in the rest of the book... Great idea to tag Kellen. I'm hopping over there to see if he's posted his yet. Thanks for playing!
