Decisions, Decisions (Friday Five)

Here's a fun one from Songbird (and you should go to the original for the kitty picture):

"Since I've been in the midst of a discernment process, I've done a lot of reflecting on how we make decisions. But don't worry, I'm not going to ask you to reveal a dark story about a poor decision, or a self-flagellating story about an embarrassing one. Let's keep it simple and go with five word pairs. Tell us which word in the pair appeals to you most, and after you've done all five, give us the reason why for one of them.

Here they are:

1) Cake or Pie
2) Train or Airplane
3) Mac or PC
4) Univocal or Equivocal
5) Peter or Paul"

1) Cake
2) Planes here; trains in Europe.
3) PC.
4) Equivocal.
5) Peter.

5) Please!  FP over TJ! 

(In real life, I am close to the middle on both scales. But if I could choose . . . ).


  1. Nice play, simple and concise. Almost univocal!

  2. I am with you on trains in Europe!

  3. Clearly I'm the odd one out. On question 5 I am so Paul.

  4. an ENFJ (and occasionally an INFJ) do I fall in the middle? LOL

    yes, playful fun...

  5. So now, QG, I am wondering (altho not surprised at all!)- do you have a specific passage that is THE Pauline call to you?

    I think mine is Peter jumping into the water followed by Jesus saying "Feed my sheep" to this fellow who is SO lacking in so many ways and then -- he does it.

  6. seems like we have little in common... ;')

  7. Robin,
    sorry for the delay in responding--we were down at the bay and internet there is spotty to say the least.

    What a great question!

    After some thought, here is my answer. THE Pauline call to me is found in Romans 8:38-39:

    "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

    Your ENTJ buddy,

  8. Well, that would be my favorite Pauline passage as well.

    Must be the NT that we share.

    And it was the text I chose for the sermon at Josh's funeral.

  9. Another thing we have in common. And it is a beautiful text for a memorial service or funeral.
