When I was a little kid I would like to a radio program called “Adventures in Oddessy” where the main character was named “Mr. Whittaker” and he ran an ice cream shop called “Whit’s End” where he would basically have adventures and tell kids about Jesus.
In all of their publications, Whit looked something like this:
So, now you know.
Compare that to Bob, OK?
RIGHT??? Wait, wait, another shot:
So, I ran into Bob on Sunday with Christine and Hanna. He shared some Camino stories…we laughed, we cried, we grew. 😀
And then it was his birthday (!) and I emailed him some greetings.
This is what he replied:
Speaking of Caminos, I was in bible study this morning and we discussed the infancy narrative from Matthew. After reading it, someone brought up the Magi and their “Camino” to Bethlehem. It said in part “After this they returned to their country a different way”. My brainstorm was – of course they went a different way; no one goes the same way after meeting Jesus!
Long way of saying I’ll always travel a different way because of “The Camino” and “The Magi” I traveled with.
Guys. I know real-life Mr. Whitaker.
