My dear alma mater, Univ of GA, doesn’t play their first game until tomorrow but already leads the SEC in one category…players arrested. How about that?
Our Atlanta zoo was missing one of their critters, a rattlesnake, but they didn’t tell partons or zoo neighbors because they had folks looking for it. After all, they explained, it’s nocturnal and probably slunk away to a dark corner of the non-public building where it was housed. The snake was found…by a 4 year-old kid…on his front porch…in the residential neighborhood near the zoo...and the kid got within 4 feet of the thing. The zoo people say that maybe they should have knocked on a few doors. Indeed. Preachers may wish for a good illustration about not sounding the alarm about sin. It could be deadly to some people.
SBC cliché watch: NAMB search committee chairman describing Kevin Ezell, nominee for NAMB CEO as, “God’s man.” So was the last guy…so was the guy before that…both of whom were dispatched by trustees. Let’s at least be creative, guys. I hate to say it and it ought not to be but that phrase is completely worn out.
Speaking of our NAMB nominee, who will be the first to use our wonderful new nomenclature, “Great Commission Giving,” when referring to his church’s giving, beside Plodder that is? And, will anyone object, preferring to “embrace and celebrate” such?
September has never been so welcome to Plodder, far too much heat and humidity. Global warming? Better candidate: age.
The SBC’s most read blogger, Wade Burleson, is back from his blogging hiatus and to get started his readers are treated to…well…a picture of his smiling self. Well, you look about the same as you did a few months ago, bro.
College football game to watch: Northwestern State vs Air Force. Last hear NWS was 0-11 and lost their two games against big time opponents by 48 and 53 points respectively. Oddsmakers are giving NWS and a staggering 48 points. Take the points. I think the NWS Demons will do better than expected. Never underestimate a demon, I say.
Have a nice weekend.
