  • Faith that takes a licking

    I spent most of last Sunday afternoon in my recliner chair reading about an overweight, out of shape guy who decided to go to Peru and hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

    He did it because he wanted to impress a girl who was also going on the trip. When he learned how strenuous the trip would be, because he didn’t want to weenie out in front of the girl, he started working out.

    A few months ago I joined a new gym, which is challenging me physically. I’m not training for a hike or anything, just a healthier life.
