I am really good at snap judgments.
If there were an All-Star team for reading other people’s motives I’d be on it. No, I’d be the team captain.
I’m not sure if my skill comes from my desire to understand people or need to judge them.
It’s not something I’m terribly proud of; it’s simply something that is.
I’m not a fearful person.
In general I’m fairly confident, but over my years in ministry I’ve experienced a few scary moments.
I once witnessed our 15-passenger van (filled to capacity with students and towing a travel trailer) crash into a guardrail on an elevated stretch of I-90 coming home from winter camp.
Our students had a fantastic and frightening view the snowy valley beneath Snoqualmie Pass.
Once during an all-nighter event we accidently left one of our students. We had to race back where he stood waiting for us. The evidence of tears in his eyes was heartbreaking.
