And it’s good to see that Benedict XVI himself has decided to participate in this meme – he writes: “I confess: when I turned 70 (ten years ago), I would have so much desired that the beloved John Paul II would allow me to dedicate myself to study and research.” Yep, we’ve all been there….

Jim West has posted his, too. They are actually funny- especially his admission that he might like Zwingli just a little too much. No, really? :-)

Pastor Bob Cornwall said...

I'm posted mine also -- And this is both difficult and perhaps good for the soul!

Whoops! Your link to the "New Perspective on Rob" is wrong, Ben. It links back to Kim Fabricius confessions.

Ben Myers said...

Thanks, Michael -- now fixed.

I've very much enjoyed these, even when I disagreed. And Byron's funny rebuke to the whole idea was amusing, too.

Jim West commented on mine that this meme has been "revealing," and I certainly agree. I think we have all gained insights into each others' humanity--in a mostly edifying way.

One more: I confess that I find it easier to memorize lines from novels and movies than to memorize Scripture. That just HAS to be sinful, or, at least, a failing of some kind.

Rob said...

Wow, my link went to Kim Fabricus. That was a definite boost to my breadth of thought! Now I have something to live up to!

Michael Westmoreland-White said...

Oh, Ben, about the Pope's quote that he wished John Paul II had let him go off and study about ten years ago? I confess I can think of at least a dozen Catholic theologians this minute who would reply, "Yeah, we wish he would have let you go off and study, too."

I made a second theological meme which others might want to try.

If you do, let me know and I can list your version at my site.
