Favorite Scriptures:  (Pastors typically do not have “one” favorite Scripture.  Instead, “new” favorites might arise from our study time.)

John 3:17 (NKJV) -  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Exodus 14:11 (NKJV) - Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt?

1 Kings 22:18 (NKJV) -  And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Did I not tell you he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?”

The last two are so funny because they capture the essence of being human!

Favorite Scripture - I could never have one.  I’m going with Philippians 4:13 and Psalm 100.

Favorite Book - I love to read to this is very hard.  But I’m going to say The Harry Potter series and Pride and Prejudice.

Favorite Food - Manicotti

Favorite Ice Cream flavor/topping - Haagen Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip with no toppings

Something weird, strange or unusual - I had to ask my family about this one. Of course, they came up with quite a few suggestions, but it kept coming back to having the tumor in my heart.  How strange, unusual and rare is that.
