Oh, the Places You'll Go!

I laughed out loud as I was walking through Barnes & Noble and saw this. It was hanging on the wall over the children's section. I had to snag the moment with my camera phone or else no one would believe me. It's an image clipped from the pages of Dr. Seuss' "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

This may be a little "inside" for a lot of you, but it's particularly meaningful for me. On 7/7/07 we've rented the Titan's Stadium in Nashville, TN. We're launching The Call with the anticipation of 100,000 people gathering there for a day of solemn assembly- a day of repentance, prayer and fasting. At the gathering we'll be sharing the LIFE message with one unique twist. We believe God has given us a beutiful gift in the story "Horton Hears A Who" which was first published in 1954. The moral repeated throughout the book is "a person's a person no matter how small." We learned that a major theatrical release of this story is planned for the spring of 2008 starring Jim Carrey. Could it be God's timing to trumpet the message of life right before the '08 elections?

This little snapshot serves as a signpost and reminder of where I'm heading. See you there.

No way.

Matt, you have to do these fasts more often. Hey, did you notice the cats and their car have LIFE tape?

God must love Dr. Seuss! Nashville, huh? If they do a movie of it I wouldn't be surprised if the "modified" the premise of the book enough to blow the whole point. It's happened before!
