My pastor, Joe Coffey, likes to do big things. Like climb Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the Lower 48. It makes me nervous. And it makes me pray. I hope he never hears about that mountain over in Nepal where they wear oxygen tanks because the summit is almost in outer space.
Last night I woke up in a cold sweat. In my nightmare, Joe was watching this video, licking his chops, holding a cardboard sign on which he had written something in his almost illegible handwriting. I leaned in close so I could read it and I shuddered. It said, “You haven’t lived until you’ve been up close and personal with a live volcano.”
I recently re-committed myself to pray for Joe every day. If Joe is your pastor, or if you like his books, why not join me?
