I was tagged by Presbyterian Gal. I promised her I’d get to this when I needed a study break, so here goes!
The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about himself or herself. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
Ten years ago:
1998. I was parenting a 3 year old and a 7 year old. It involved the mundane stuff like looking for a preschool for Reedy Girl, bringing The Harpist home from the E.R. from a playground accident (she was fine – only stitches and bruises), facing the reality of my dad’s terminal cancer, and volunteering in the elementary school. I was leading worship and struggling with not doing more. I was writing and dreaming of teaching/speaking and saw no way for that to happen.
Five things on today’s “to do” list:
1. Read textbooks for Mentoring class (I am behind… again!)
2. Read for my research paper on feminist theology.
3. Laundry. Always laundry.
4. Clean out fridge. I was gone for a week. We’re makin’ penicillin here…
5. Do some serious calendar coordination. It’s going to be a busy summer.
Three bad habits:
Only three??? Geesh. It’s more like which 3 I want to admit to having…
1. Caffeine (WAY too much)
2. Saturated fats
3. Going emo.
Five places I’ve lived:
1. Rock Hill, SC
2. Columbus, Ohio
3. Coral Gables, FL
4. Bloomfield, NJ
5. Montgomery County, MD
—ooops!! I forgot this one!—-
Things I’d do if I was a billionaire:
Go for a D.Min. since money would be no object, after I had paid back into my savings what I’ve spent so far. Endow a fund for small churches refurbishments and R&R cruises for their pastors. Endow a chair at a conservative seminary for feminist theology and give a bunch of bucks to Christians for Biblical Equality. Maybe buy out a televangelist’s studio so that a more balanced perspective on Christianity could be broadcast. (Barring that, buying up the world’s supply of hairspray and false eyelashes. just sayin.) And last, but not least, spend a whole lot of time caring and listening to people who need a pastor, wherever in the world that takes me!
—-end of oopsie—-
Five jobs I’ve had:
