Ice Breaker – Lunch With A Bible Hero

Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question.  The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community.  I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments.  While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

Question:  If you could have lunch with someone from the Bible (besides Jesus), who would it be?  Why?

My Answer:  I think my answer would probably change from time to time, but for right now I think it would be pretty amazing to have lunch with David.  David was known as a man after God’s own heart.  He made plenty of mistakes, but he seemed to always come back to God.  As a writer, I think it would be interesting to talk to him about his own writing.  In a way, the Psalms are kind of like a blog from ancient days, and David is responsible for writing many of these poems.  I would ask him about his faith.  I would listen as he described God.  After lunch, I’d see if we could head down to the local rock quarry, so he could teach me a thing or two about slinging stones.

There you have it – my answer.  Now, it’s your turn.  Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment.  I look forward to reading your response!
