Serious? Not so much!

This past Saturday, the good folks over at On Pop Theology interviewed me for an upcoming podcast.  After talking about serious issues of race and privilege in the church for over 30 minutes, Ben and Jesse (the hosts) asked me five not-so-serious questions just for fun. Then my pastor preached a sermon on Sunday entitled Take Everything Less Seriously. So, I'm taking these two coincidences as a hint to do something lighter on the blog this week :)

I'm opinionated (bet you couldn't tell!) so it was super easy for me to answer the 5 questions that Ben and Jesse posed to me.  I've shared my answers with you below.  If you're game, I'd love for you to answer as many of them as you'd like in the comments.  Answer one, answer all of them - it's your choice and it's just for fun!

Brad wishes he was a cool as Billy.

1. What's your favorite movie? MONEYBALL.  Every. single. day. Moneyball. Billy Beane is my hero. That is all.

2. What's your least favorite movie? anything by Baz Lurhmann.  I can't get through any of his movies.

3. Who's your favorite musician/band: Olafur Arnalds, a contemporary Icelandic composer. His music is hopeful.

4. What's your least favorite song: anything by John Mayer.

Asher.cov5. What's a book you'd recommend to anyone who reads this blog: My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok. It's my favorite novel and it is stunning. I also like everything by Jhumpa Lahiri.


I'd love to hear from you (especially all you readers who don't typically know who you are)! :)
