So I must be driving back to Nashville. Of the 9 weeks I’ve been commuting I’ve driven in two snows, about a half-dozen showers or thunderstorms and have had to divert off the interstate for a bridge implosion and an accident.
So at around 6, I threw in disc 3 of the Johnny Cash Unearthed Boxed set and started off. Today’s story was on Extreme Home Makeover on ABC. If you saw last night’s show (we rarely miss it) the design team chose a pastor’s family in Oklahoma. They had been living in a pastorium (the house the preacher lives in, furnished by the church) but when he died suddenly of a heart attack they had no where to go.
Anyway, some folks at Lifeway in Nashville helped with the makeover. We tried to do the story on Friday but ABC wouldn’t return our calls and give permission for the folks at Lifeway to talk. The story was pretty interesting. I’ve had the feeling watching this show that there is a dynamic of faith or spirituality going on each week. The person at Lifeway confirmed it, saying the producer told him that she’d seen some “strange things happening this week.”
The story was supposed to run at 5 but a tornado warning meant it would air some other time. I don’t know when or when it’ll make the website.
I’m working on a story on Purim tomorrow and will take the rest of the week off. The family’s driving up tomorrow night and we’ll vacation in our new town and look for houses.
