radio interview "like a little child"

Wanted to let you know that Charles Morris at Haven Today is interviewing me on air June 24-26th about The Jesus Storybook Bible.

He's a lovely man and we had a blast. I think you'll enjoy the program. We're talking about the importance of reaching children where they are, how to best convey to children the Gospel in all its fullness, what makes this particular children's bible story book unique, what it was like writing the book. I will also be reading stories from the book every day for a week.

And they're offering the book free with a donation! What a deal. Quick don't miss out! Here's a link to their site where you can catch the inteview: Part 1 and Part 2.

I am also reading six stories from the book, and you can listen here:
The Story and The Song
A Giant Staircase to Heaven
Daniel and the Scary Sleepover
The Man who didn't have any Friends (none)
The Captain of the Storm
Washed with Tears

Here's what he said about the book: "This exquisitely illustrated collection of children's Bible stories are connected by a scarlet thread - every story whispers his name. Profound theological truths in storybook form, The Jesus Storybook Bible is nothing short of a masterpiece!" I told you he was lovely.

a most frugivorous bird

A whole family of birds has been eating berries, spitting them out and pooping all over my car. I am now driving about disguised as a giant purple berry poop.

I'm not sure which family of birds they are. Or what kind of berries they're gobbling up. But this picture shows someone being caught red-handed--so I thought he would do. He is a Wax Wing, who is also a "Masked Berry Thief", who is apparently "one of the most frugivorous birds in North America". (A fancy show off way of saying "this bird eats the most berries of anyone else around here.")

There's another family (actually I think it might be more like a tribe or a nation) of birds who lives on just one lone tree on my street. And chat non stop all day long. (I think they may be "one of the most chativorous birds in North America".) Needless to say, you never want to be parking under their tree.

Purple Poops. Just one of the hazards of parking on the street in New York City.

where AM I?
