P. 123

Tag has been a game that I have gone back and forth on in the previous years. It was a game that wanted to include you only to leave you out in the cold once you were it. Your disease infested being could infect others and all were trying to get a way from you.

Usher in the new age of computer tag, in which emails are passed around with feel good crap or high pressure stakes that push you into an eternal decision by how many people you forwarded on this heresy of an email.

Most recently I was tagged by Andy Kerr. Fortunately this form of tag is to include those around you and has nothing to do with your eternal salvation, but rather what you're reading.

The Rules:

  • Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more (no cheating!)
  • Find page 123
  • Find the first five sentences
  • Post the next three sentences
  • Tag five people

I waited till I had a cool enough book near me to prove that I have some gall. The book: God's Companions, by Samuel Wells, which I just received today from Amazon for the course Christian Ethics.

The practices of healing belong in relation to all the gifts of God explored in the foregoing chapters: healing takes its appropriate place as part of answering the call to be God's companions, to join the ministery of reconciliation. It is part of the transformation one can expect to grow out of justification and sanctification. Healing means exhibiting more of the fruits of the spirit-- becoming a witness to abundance rather than a herald of scarcity.

That said, I hereby tag:

  1. Chris Ridgeway
  2. Luke Johnson
  3. Kevin Cawley
  4. Joe Thorn
  5. Steve McCoy

Oh, and no tag backs.
