Nearing 900

Not too long from now, Philosophy Over Coffee will see its 900th post published.

It's hard to believe that I've wasted that much time on here.

I could wait until 1000 to do something like this, but I totally wanted to rip off what Scott is doing at his place for his 700th.

So, for my 900th post...I'll answer 9 questions. First come, first served. As long as it doesn't throw my semi-anonymity into something less than that. I'll also be selective about questions pertaining to the church I serve. Anything else is pretty much fair game: favorite color, where I like to vacation, thoughts on gas prices, whatever.

So have at it.

OK, I'm playing along at home...

Over the course of 900 posts, what have you learned about yourself, your ministry, and your family - not necessarily in that order - that has simply amazed you?

Or you can move to the bonus lightning round and associate the first word or brief phrase that comes to your mind with these nine topics:

State of the Church:
Detroit Lions:
Dirty diapers:
Book-less society:
Blogging vs. sermonizing:

I'd like to know your stance on following (because they can be quite contraversial within the church):

Assisted Suicide:
Gay Rights/Marriage:
Pre-marital sex:

I've heard so many different takes on the above from so many different pastors. I'm always interested in what they have to say and how it reflects on their beliefs.

Man, we sure aren't playing softball here, are we? ;)

For those keeping a tally, I'm counting BDB's comment as 2 questions, and Monica's makes 3 (even though each of them could easily be a separate entry).

So I need 6 more.

No offense on my end if you only choose one or the other. I didn't expect you would take both. As a matter of fact, let's make my response like a JWR test - answer one or the other.

Ok, so I'll go easy on you! I always love to hear guy's response to this one...in fact I usually tear up, so don't let me down..haha! What is the best thing about being a dad?

Jeff Nelson said...

It's okay, BDB. If I don't get 9 questions total otherwise, I'll use both.

How about this, POC: Name 9 great coffeehouses at which you've sipped in your lifetime.

Jeff Nelson said...

I need 4 more. Chop, chop, people!

What are the stories behind your tatoos?

I'm a first-timer here via RevGals, so if you've already talked about them here, sorry!

What do you not want your son to know about you when he grows up?

What do you want him to know?

In whose death would you delight?

What's your favorite computer game?

What's the most important thing in following Jesus?

All right, I'll pick and choose from Don's, and that gives us 9. Thanks, all.
