Got-Fruit Tagged Meme

No.  I didn’t misspell “me.” Now for the second time in as many weeks, someone has tagged me to play a quirky blog game. This one is known as meme. Don’t ask me why: I have no idea.

Got Fruit? tagged me. It took me a long time to find out I had been tagged. I kept seeing these Incoming Links on my WordPress Blog Stats dashboard, but never bothered to click on them to find out what was up. Now I know….  Now I can play!

Here are the rules of the meme game:

  1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
  2. Find Page 123
  3. Find the first 5 sentences
  4. Post the next 3 sentences
  5. Tag 5 people

Here is the quote:

How should we define and analyze it? In answer to this question, the Bible sets forth a conception of God’s love which we may formulate as follows:
God’s love is an exercize of his love towards individual sinners whereby, having identified himself with their welfare, he has given his Son to be their Savior, and now brings them to know and enjoy him in a covenant relation.
Let us explain the constituent parts of this definition.

from Knowing God by J. I. Packer (sold over 1 million copies since 1973). The book was sitting on my desk; I plan on giving it to a friend.

  3. “‘Christianity is so predictable,’ one person we interviewed said with contempt. Two-thirds of young outsiders said the faith is boring, a descrption embraced by one-quarter of young churchgoers as well. The image of being sheltered means the Christian faith seems dull, flat, and lifeless.”

    (It was either that or a book on statistics…. 🙂 )

  4. Oh, I also got tagged a couple of days ago. And if I hadn’t been told about this incoming link thingy, I probably would’ve missed this one too. Sometimes, I don’t read all the way through. Anyhow, I’m going to work now, but I’ll do this tonight.
