moving the podcast – interview from August 6, 2013
One of my favorite interviews!
I’ve often seen Larry in the same cyber places I was visiting, and I was regularly struck by what a nice guy he seemed to be and the good things he had to say. In our interview, Larry talked to me about his blogging missteps, searching for the right church and letting God shape his dreams. We also talked about how we sometimes head out on a search for self or faith or purpose, only to come around full circle, right back to the place we started from. And how, at forty-five, Larry is just now learning who he is.
“What I’ve realized is that I’ve got a story, and that’s what I’m trying to tell.
In bits and pieces, I’m trying to tell a little bit of my story.”

I do a series on my blog where I ask random questions and post everyone’s answers. It’s been fun, interesting and enlightening. I’ve learned a lot about how we all see the world from our own perspectives, and yet our opinions and beliefs are often surprisingly similar to one another.
I’ve really enjoyed some of the discussions the Queries have brought on, talks that started with a single question and somehow branched out in multiple directions. This is a snippet of one of those conversations I had with my dad when I asked him, “Do you believe in destiny?”
Connect with Tom he’s written a few guest pieces on steadily skipping stones:
Loving people is sometimes hard work. Because they don’t always look like us, they don’t always act like we want them to act…they aren’t always nice to us. Sometimes the people that we are called to love are actually our enemies. That’s what Jesus has called us to do as his people. So loving people is hard, but we know that that’s the standard. That’s the foundation for everything that we do as followers of Jesus.
