Hurrah for Tuesday!

Memories

When the prophet Joel said, “Your old will dream dreams,” (2:28) did he really have Tuesdays in mind? Do feel free to post your own Tuesday Memory.

Modern issues

300 Tuesday because 300 is about how many words it takes to connect a modern issue with an ancient scripture without putting us to sleep, and Tuesday is the day to do it.Why connect our modern issues to ancient scripture?

1) Most of us seem just as human as Elijah, Obadiah, and Ahab. And some a little more so.

2) “Enlightenment can sometimes come through simple things.” If a regular elijah shows up a simple thing in those old scriptures, help us see how the principle works with a modern issue. 300 Tuesday because 300 is about how many words it takes to connect a modern issue with an ancient scripture without putting us to sleep, and Tuesday is the day to do it.Post your own new topic. Aim for about 300 words — that’s how many it takes to connect a modern issue with an ancient scripture without putting us to sleep.

Keep it fun:

Even if I talk like a blithering idiot, it does not help my hearing for you to call me one.

3) No naming presidents or parties

Flying a blue flag closes the minds of those who voted red, and flying a red flag closes the minds of those who voted blue. Either group is roughly half the American population. George Washington is the only president to win 100% of the vote, and presidents since Eisenhower have won closer to 50%.

Once your description is out there, of course, we’re going to figure out your affiliations. But make us work at it. The exercise makes us think and gives us an opportunity to absorb some of your wisdom.

Pictures help keep me involved. You too? Do send.

Extra credit assignment

In a regular elijah, at what points did you think I nailed it, and at what points did you go, “Nah!”

Opt out

I struggled with the MailChimp system and finally set up a one-click opt-out thing that takes anybody off the mailing list who wants off. Not that I’m showing you the door. Just that I like to brag about what little work ethic I still display.
