No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline will be to recognize my own humanity by giving thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. My 2013 40 Days of Lenten Thanks.
There are a few people in my life about whom I can honestly say, “we became adults together” but my friend and colleague, John Lee is one of them. I’ve known John for over 20 years, he from the mid-west and me for California, and over that time we have experienced some the best and worst of life and times. Oh the stories I could tell . . . From teaching me how to play guitar – “You will learn how to play a bar chord.” – to being so desperate to play basketball that we used a golf ball on a court lit with headlights from our car, to doing ministry through the best and toughest times of people’s lives, my life has been blessed by knowing and serving with John.
Today I give thanks is for my friend, John.
