i just heard this announcement over the p.a. here at school: "there will be a safe meeting tomorrow morning at 7 am for anyone interested in attending." who exactly was the audience for that message? who says, "oh man, i've had enough of those meetings with the gunfire and knife juggling and fast driving...i need a safe meeting for a change." what the crap?
that reminded me of the explosion (intentional irony) of "safety fairs" in recent years. what kind of kid says, "mommy, lets go learn 'bout some safety!" you probably even had teachers, etc. that preached, "safety first." i just want to go on record and say that i believe that to be a bunch of bullcrap. i don't mean that we should go around sticking paper clips in electrical outlets, but i'm pretty sure that GOD never meant for safety to ascend to the highest moral value in his universe of waterfalls, tornadoes, and grizzly bears. just a hunch.
i probably sound like john eldredge. he's ok. i'd rather sound like cs lewis.
