I recently discovered the writing of Anne Lamott, and just loved what she says both in this excellent, honest and funny TED Talk ‘
12 truths I learned from life and writing,’ and in this comment below, which is about writing in particular, but what she says about the curse of perfectionism in general, is spot on:
Gralefrit is (another) blog of theological musings and sermons and other juicy tit-bits from a follower of Jesus Christ, hoping to be joined by others along the Way.
Gralefrit is a made-up word coined by the undercover policeman (played by Robin Ellis) in an episode of Fawlty Towers (A Touch of Class) who, when ordering breakfast from the maid Polly, assumed the persona of an ignorant illiterate, and ordered his grapefruit by stumbling through the menu and asked for a “gralefrit’. Classic!!
The link with this web site should be obvious: I am a God-lover/Jesus follower/Baptist church minister/aspiring-theologian/husband/father/grandfather from England, but feel that any attempts to explain the divine grapefruit of God’s Word only end up as a stuttering and incoherent stumble towards something that stretches and leans towards the real thing.
If I can tempt you with my gralefrit’s, then maybe you can be encouraged to actually taste the real thing.
Oh, and another thing, to prove I'm no crack pot, Liverpool are by far the greatest team the world has ever seen!
