There is an old, Billy Crystal movie called City Slickers. I was watching it in heavy rotation during life changes of marriage and children. It is totally a guy movie where the characters discover self and the meaning of life during a “buddy film’ adventure of a cattle herd drive in the wild west.
The “discovery” part comes in this conversation between Crystal as Mitch and Jack Palance as cowboy Curley:
Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is?
[holds up one finger] This.
Mitch: Your finger?
Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean s#|t.
Mitch: But, what is the "one thing?"
Curly: [smiles] That’s what *you* have to find out.
What’s the one thing? Well, you are not going to find it on the blog; it is, of courase, what you have to find out… BUT….
If you could only share 1Thing about scripture or church, 1Thing to share with a young person, a parent, an adult, what would it be…? This is what we will be exploring over the next few weeks. If you have a category (and even a suggested one thing), please e-mail me.
