"I quit preaching the gospel, and began living it." This is the comment of Robert Crum on NPR’s StoryCorps. It was 40 years as a Methodist minister that he was comparing to operating a shelter for troubled youth, battered women, and people struggling to make their way in the world. The responsibilities of a pastor tend to concentrate on proclamation and leave little time for application. The same is true for a publisher and Robert Crum leaves me feeling challenged rather than affirmed.

I heard this comment this morning too and it brought me up short. It wasn't at all what I expected to hear but I loved it. I'm glad you brought it up; over the course of my day I had forgotten about it.
