My Answers to The Liebster Award Questions

Emeka gave me these questions to answer:

1) What made you decided to start blogging? It is more like ‘Who helped me decide to start blogging?’ I have an inherent drive to communicate, especially by the spoken and written word. God called me to pastoral ministry over 30 years ago. I have been feeling His call to write for a few years and recently retired from the pastorate to pursue this call. 

2) What’s your favorite social media and your 3 favorite books? I don’t know that I have a favorite social media. I have been spending a lot of time at a new outlet called GAB because it seems to honor free speech more than Google or Twitter or Facebook. That does mean some objectionable speech gets onto GAB, however, I believe that the truth will win out and it is necessary to confront “bad” speech with good, righteous speech. My 3 favorite books are ONE: The Bible; TWO: “The Lord of The Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien. I have read the trilogy over 20 times and am still in awe of Tolkien’s genius. THREE: “The Light and The Glory” by David Manuel and Peter Marshall. A wonderful history of early America based on the idea that God had a grand plan for America. I can’t recommend this highly enough. It is 287678713_9a1eec216d_qthoroughly researched and full of quotes from the founding fathers themselves. 

 

 

 

3) If you were to live somewhere else, which place would that be and why? If I chose in the U.S. it would have to be my childhood home near the Sierra Nevada mountains. If anywhere in the world, it would be Israel. What city I do not know, it would be enough to live in the “Holy Land.”

4) What’s your ultimate blogging goal? To be able to get the word about the Word out to as many people as possible with this venue. Hopefully, this will include a book I am currently working on that might be released (when it’s ready!) on my site. That is still to be determined. 5328056910_3a7ced26ae_z

 

 

 

 

 

5) What is your life motto? My motto is encapsulated by my life verse: “He must increase, but I must decrease.”  John 3:30

      1. You made me think about it, and you know, actually if we are faithful at least, we will also be faithful at most.
        For God, and it must be for us also, 1 cent, 1 million, 1 billion, … is the same.
