If you’ve hung around these here parts for any length of time, you know that we hold dearly to our core principles, beginning with the dearest of the dear, that being the clarion call to “Own Your Awkward”.
I gotta tell you, though, for this particular episode with Morgan Snyder from Ransomed Heart Ministries, that little value of ours was put to the test, and I was tempted to edit the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks out of it.
Don’t get me wrong. It was a great conversation, not just about Morgan’s new book, “Becoming a King”, but about, oh a lot of things. The “new normal”. God as “gender full”. Acknowledging wounds, and healing hurts. The man’s got insight, let me tell you. In fact, so much so, that at one point in the conversation it took a turn toward the vulnerable, and I had to make a choice as to whether I’d keep that part to myself, or share it with you all. (I’ll let you figure out where, though it probably won’t be hard). But in the end, I decided not to edit it out, cause, well, sometimes a little vulnerability makes for a much more interesting conversation. And who knows, maybe something in my awkwardness might even resonate… as long as it’s not too awkward, and doesn’t cross that TMI line, which is always fine, and you never quite know when you’ve crossed it, but of course, everyone else knows.
So, you’ll just have to let me know. But do it nicely. We’ll live. We’ll learn.
In the mean time, enough of this preamble. Just go ahead and listen. That’s what you’re really here for.
