A dinner to remember

At our new Life Group this week we did some get to know you style questions. One that I enjoy asking people is, "If you could have dinner with anyone in the world who would it be?" The only limits are: the individual has to still be alive, and it has to be someone you don't already know. I can think of lots of people I would love to sit down with over a juicy steak and learn from. Here's a list of a few of them:

- Bruce Springsteen: my favorite musician, writer of the greatest rock song ever, Born to Run

- Andy Stanley: The list of things I would ask would take way longer than one meal

- Tiger Woods: How does he stay so disciplined and committed to excellence?

- Bill Cosby: I would just sit back and laugh at his stories

- Johnny Depp: I have nothing to talk to him about, but maybe over dinner some of his coolness would rub off on me.

- Oprah: Again, nothing to say to her, just hoping she would make a large financial contribution to Freedom, or to the Marshall Fund (my checking account)

Who's on your list? I'd love to read it. Just leave a comment.

here is a small list for you:

forrest from hgb: hellogoodbye is like my favorite band and he would be hilarious.

erwin mcmanus: amazing author and he once described his position in ministry as "mystic warrior."

lebron james: face it - he is the best at what he does.

will ferrell: i would probably just sit there and quote anchorman lines to him... and probably annoy him.


cliff marshall: i would have nothing to really say to him... i would just hope that some of my coolness would rub off on him.

face it... it is more likely than you getting a dinner with mr. depp.

"The Human Fund: money for people"
Hank Aaron: his creed is do unto others as you would have them do unto you . . . and don't screw it up!
Jerry Jones: especially if he's buying. I'd beg him to buy the Cowboys a better secondary.
Ben and Jerry: just to thank em!
Tom and Jerry: see above.
