So I got into a game of
‘Have you met the people I’ve met?’
A one up-manship game with one of Sara’s great friends… Having lived 35 years more than him plus having been in rather public work for all of that time,
I held a distinct advantage.
Oh, said I, ‘Have you met Norbert Butz, the Broadway Star and recipient of many a TONY? And how about Charlie Pollock (‘Days of our Lives’) and Kevin Kern
(Wicked and Les Mis)…
And Hugh Jackman. And Regis. And more….’
Then we got to politicians. Yep, Barack Obama. George Bush too. Up in Canada, every Prime Minister since
Lester B Pearson (early 1960’s)…
Sports stars: Yep. Many of them as well.
Let’s try Warren Moon on for size not to mention
Eli Manning. Dan Marino?
Music? ‘Story of the Year’.
Business? How about Leland Bredsal, former CEO of Freddy Mack / Sally Mae. And others.
Well, Sara’s friends just stopped trying to keep up…
I had them but good with my list of ‘superstars’.
As I did say, I held the clear advantage.
Yet, as I think back on this game, I realize that I’d missed out mentioning the biggest star of them all; the one who makes me who I am and actually put me into the spaces and places to meet and in some cases minister to these people. The One who is the true world SUPERSTAR; giving me light, joy and peace. Jesus Christ, the light of the world who is the foundation of my very being.
I’d give up all whom I know just to know JESUS.
