Some things about me that you may not have known and now that I’ve “let the cat out of the bag” you may wish you still didn’t know. Beware…there will be more revelations from time to time. Personal note to Brodie: If we sit up late at Christian Horizons and talk long enough, you'll hear all these stories.
My Biggest Sports Hero (that I’ve met and conversed with): Julius Erving (Dr. J)
The Meeting I Was Looking Forward To (but got lost en route): A meeting with Dr. Billy Graham in Toronto in 1995. As a committee member of Mission Ontario I was scheduled to meet Dr. Graham at a reception at the Marriott Hotel with the rest of the committee and their spouses but we got lost trying to find a park where our foster daughter was having a picnic.
Sports Hero I Would Like to Meet But Never Did: David Robinson, now retired from the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs
Favorite Southern Gospel Song Writer: Rodney Griffin of Greater Vision
Favorite Soft Drink (or soda for my American friends): Diet Pepsi (I know, it’s not good for me)
Favorite Vacation Place in the United States: Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
Favorite Preacher Who I Heard Speak in His Home Church: James Montgomery Boice at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, PA
Favorite Place I Would Like to Visit: Bristol, England, the site of George Muller’s Orphanages. I was scheduled to visit the British Isles several years ago but plans fell through.
Favorite Historical Site I’ve Visited: Some of the cathedrals in Vienna, Austria
Most Embarrassing Moment: There are several but one of them was driving author and preacher Hal Lindsey from his hotel to The Peoples Church in Toronto in my Honda Accord with a blown muffler. It must have sounded like the Apocalypse had already arrived.
Favorite Television Series: Little House on the Prairie
Man I’d Most Like to Meet: The late Jim Elliot who was martyred in Ecuador in 1956.
Note to my blogging friends: I'd be thrilled if you took these headings and sent me your "favorites". I'd even post some of them on Pilgrim Scribblings.
