Friday Stream of Consciousness – 90

stream of consciousness

Here are some things on my mind this Friday morning:

•Vin Scully is coming back for a 65th year of broadcasting Dodger Baseball. He is, in my opinion, the greatest of them all. I know Tiger, Cardinal, Cub and Yankee fans might have a quarrel with that, but each of those announcers who were actually peers of Scully’s said themselves they thought he was the best.

•I was blessed to attend a one-day Catalyst at Saddleback Church this week—featuring Andy Stanley and Craig Groeschel. One quote I’m still chewing on came from Craig in a session on creating a culture of accountability on staff: “You are only as strong as you are honest.”

•California became the first state to mandate transgender access to all restrooms, locker-rooms and sports teams. You can read a rather charitable, if not dishonest piece on the law by CNN here. I say dishonest because the most controversial piece of the law is left completely out of the article—I’ll get to that in a bit.

Friday Stream of Consciousness – 51

stream of consciousness

Here are some things I’m thinking about this Friday morning:

An Indian man just became a father again at age 96, breaking his own record. He met his 52-year-old wife 10 years ago, after practicing a life of celibacy. His quotes are priceless: “My neighbors are jealous and they keep asking me for my secret, but all I tell them is that it is God’s will,” He then adds: “I think it’s very important for a husband and a wife to have sex regularly and when she asks, I will go on all night, but for the sake of my child I’ve put our needs aside for now.” Toward the end of the article, he says that while he is perfectly capable of having more children, he’s done for financial reasons. Sorry…that’s just awesome. Click here to read the article.

It’s looking more and more like we need to start practicing saying, “President Romney.”
