PLEASE MARK ANY OF THE BELOW WHICH APPLY TO YOU:
[ ] Do you enjoy studying the gospel beyond an official curriculum?
[ ] Are you sometimes caught enjoying a book on doctrine/the scriptures rather than playing video games or watching sports events?
[ ] Are you sometimes bummed that you don't know very many people to share your passion for enjoying a deeper, more profound relationship with God?
[ ] Do you sometimes think, "Wow, this is SUCH a cool doctrine! Too bad I can't share it at church!"?
[ ] OK, let's call it like it is: Do you sometimes feel like a freak or wierdo because one of your hobbies is learning about the mysteries of godliness?
If any of the above may apply to you, I invite you to read (or even better, listen to) "Well-Informed, Unquestioned Desire (aka The Parable of the Advanced Placement Student)".
Some background: I've had a few dreams which I felt could be shared on this blog. Even fewer were the dreams which were were deliberately, unmistakably intended for sharing on this blog.
"The Parable of the Advanced Placement Student" was one of those dreams.
Originally posted on Thursday, November 22, 2012, it's a story not only about me, but many of my friends -- those I already knew, those I ended up meeting, and (I suppose) more I have yet to meet.
I was tremendously blessed to have witnessed this story with my own (unconscious) eyes. Even today, my memory retains all the vividness of the dream as it did many years ago.
This post, and especially its accompanying podcast, is a very accurate retelling of my dream, down to the smallest detail and the song at the end.
I hope to it's as meaningful to you as it is to me.
