What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

Hot Seat Question

If you’ve been reading along for a while, you’ll know that one of my favorite “small group” activities is the Hot Seat where you put someone on the spot by asking them any question(s). Here’s one of the questions from my “library” of questions along with my answer. I’d love to hear how you would answer this same question.

Question: If you could have lunch with any three “famous” people living or dead (not a relative and not Jesus) who would they be?

My Answer: First, I’d probably go with Mother Theresa. I’m kind of guessing that we wouldn’t do a whole lot of talking. I would probably be following her around trying to grab some of her wisdom as she continued her non-stop service to others.

Second (I’m kind of cheating on this one), John McCain and Barack Obama at the same time would be an interesting lunch. I would like to listen to what they are going to do to make this country and this world a better place for me, my kids, their kids, etc. I would put them on the hot seat also.
Third (or fourth depending on how you look at it), I have to imagine that eating lunch with Bono from U2 would be amazing. From what I understand, this guy is full of ideas. I’d love to hear some about his experience with his band (one of my favorites). I’d love to know what makes him tick. I’d like to see him in action as he describes his goals for the next ten years of his life.

So, there you have it. Who would you choose? I’d love to hear who and why.

Until the next post…

    My 3 people would be John Lennon, Bono and my maternal grandfather.
    John Lennon to speak about peace, Bono for the same plus his Coexist (which I am sure is not looked upon as wholly positive in Christian’s eyes) and my maternal grandfather because he died when I was young and he is the only grandparent I did not get to know that well and I resemble him in my looks and other ways so I am told. I truly want peace in the world and enjoy it when I have it in my life. Part of my journey is to find the way there more often with the realization that the journey itself may end up being as peaceful as I get.
