It’s a bit past 8am as I (Seth) write this in Alabama. It is 24°C and supposed to get up to 31° today. By comparison, in Youghal the high is 15° today. I have already been to a Bible study this morning, which started at 6:30 at a local restaurant. In Youghal, no restaurant would be open at 6:30am. Most things don’t open there until 9am. But even though I am used to a different schedule after living in Ireland, I am so glad I got up for the study. To be together with a group of men who are serious about God, serious about taking responsibility for their families, and willing to get to the heart of difficult things even if it ruins the impression that they have it all together – that is something I would get up any time to be part of.
