Voice of the Day

earthy mysticismI’ve been reading Earthy Mysticism* by Tex Sample as part of my devotional time and so far I’m really appreciating it. Back when I started reading the book and was in the introduction I came accross my favorite Tex Sample quote and I’ve been meaning to share it with you. Here it is:

The call to go into the ministry is a lot like throwing up. You can put it off for a while, but there comes a time when you have to do it.

—Tex Sample, Earthy Mysticism, xi.

*Earthy Mysticism includes the story “They Syrup Can” about Tex’s time working in the oilfields on a pipe-pulling crew. I shared that story in a sermon recently.
