The Dream Flight Is Back

? Of the Week:

airline-seatsYou’re on a four-hour flight, up for conversation and you think the person in the next seat is also. You turn and find yourself sitting next to ________________!

What person in the “Christian world” would you most like to find yourself sitting next to for that flight? You can name up to three

  1. .
  2. .
  3. .

or just name one. But let us know some reasons, and if we don’t know this person, explain who they are.

And yes, I know it would be more productive if you were sitting next to a stranger who simply needed to hear about Jesus from you, but we’ll take that as a given, okay?

Two weeks ago in the link list we mentioned Erwin McManus’ stage production, Casket.   This week, a 30-second commercial by him in the Doritos “Crash the Superbowl” contest — also called Casket — is one of six finalists.   You can watch all six this week only at this link.   Having watched all six, I’d say it has a really good chance of airing.


  1. mark buchanan (favorite author), francis chan (challenges me), and matt chandler (heroic).

  2. 1. David Gushee (favorite ethicist)
    2. Richard Mouw (favorite living theologian)
    3. R.T. Kendall (so I could ask his view on women in church ministry since I can’t find it anywhere; drop me a line if anyone knows)

  3. I’m not sure who I listed the first time we did this, but Greg Boyd would currently be on that list somewhere. No agenda. I’d just let him ramble.
