Anyone with a Twitter account knows that rashly responding to a Tweet without thinking it through is a recipe for trouble.
I cooked up some trouble on Tuesday.
Here’s the tweet from talk show host Doug Bursch:
Even though I am neither a pastor nor an author I replied and the next thing I know I’m on the phone with a radio host who’s interviewing me for his show. We talked about encouragement, and about what it means for me to be a trial court judge trying to live faithfully to God.*
Doug is a good interviewer, making me come across as somewhat intelligent and intelligible.** The segment starts at the 12 minute mark on this link:
Later in his program Doug speaks on the church, answering those who say the church isn’t manly enough. If you go to 1:00:45 on the link you’ll probably be as surprised – and pleased – as I was to hear him tie this into the story of Cain and Abel.
*I refer to a few Bible passages in that interview: Barnabas – Acts 4:36-37 and 9:26-28; God our Comforter – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; God as the righteous judge of all the earth – Genesis 18:25.
**Doug also serves as a pastor, and blogs at Fairly Spiritual.
