The Ultimate Word

"The ultimate Word is not a paragraph but a person. If Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, then the heart of proclamation is personal and relational, not propositional."

Big Doings in Mayberry...



My town was featured in an article in the New York Times. It's a little silly, I know, but I'm kind of excited about it. I've lived here nearly four years. In one more year, I will have lived here longer than I've ever lived anywhere in my life.

In an earlier post, I talked about home. There are certainly a lot of days when this place is starting to feel like home, too. I've made a lot of very significant friendships. I can drive through this maze of streets that were built before anyone was thinking about urban planning without even getting lost. And now, when I read about this odd little unknown town of 16,000 people in the New York Times, I find myself kind of proud.

Funny, huh?
