Never get involved in a land war in Asia

and never agree to transcribe 20 hours of meetings from an Australian business meeting.

That's what I've been doing for the last 4 days...utter nightmare. Could NOT understand their accents. Making it worse were the bad audio levels and the fact that a lot of the people preesnt insisted on talking over each other from all around the room except in front of the microphone... I will never transcribe ANYTHING every again.

Anyway, so sorry to be MIA from my blogs.

My Favorite Dorothy Sayers Quote

From Patheos: My Favorite Dorothy Sayers Quote
The Quote: “The people who hanged Christ never, to do them justice, accused him of being a bore – on the contrary, they thought him too dynamic to be safe. It has been left for later generations to muffle up that shattering personality and surround him with an atmosphere of tedium. We have very efficiently pared the claws of the Lion of Judah, certified him ‘meek and mile,’ and recommended him as a fitting household pet for pale curates and pious old ladies.”
The Source: Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957), renowned English crime writer, poet, play-write, essayist, translator, and Christian. She is best known for her mysteries, novels and short stories.
The Wow: From the first time I heard a fellow Christian minister and church leader cite this quote, I have drawn so much from reflecting on it. It challenges me to the truth that not only is my “God too small”, my Christ is often too small in my mind
