An Apt Metaphor

A monk was asked by a television interviewer to describe in thirty seconds life in the monastery. His answer: "We fall down, then we get up. We fall down, then we get up. We fall down, then we get up. We fall down, then we get up...." (Bradley P. Holt, Thirsty for God, p. 10) It sounds to me like a good way to describe the life of all Christians.

Mike,

Did you know Kyle Matthews when you were at Crievewood? He wrote a song about that story. Follow link above. It actually won a Dove Award.

Bill,

I certainly remember Kyle--and you. I actually saw Kyle at some Baptist meeting a few months ago. Thanks for the link--I confess that, to my shame, I am not conversant with much new music--by which I mean anything after the Beatles or the Happy Goodman Family.
