My good friend Bryan Anderson is a Biology professor at Bethel University. He is a smart guy from my home town of Cable Wisconsin population 280ish. Bryan lives the good life with his family here in the Twin Cities faithful to God, family, and friends.
Like I said Bryan is a very good friend, and we meet for lunch often, and when we meet he will share with me his secrets for a happy life. I have summed up these secrets in what I would call The Four Principles of Bryan for a happy life.
While I cheerfully own a cell phone, read my email, and wear a seat belt.. I do believe Bryan is on to something regarding this sign happy world.
Also Bryan reinforces his sign concerns by quoting Jesus in Matthew 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it.. Of course that is not exactly what Jesus was talking about in Mat 16:4, but this still is more relevant then if he quoted from let's say.. TWO Corinthians.
So there you have The Four Principles of Bryan for a world looking for a.. a.. ahem a sign?
May God bless your lives with fully charged smartphones, manageable email, seat belts in your cars, and life uncluttered by excessive sign-age.
