ODD DISCIPLINES & BEHAVIORS


What idiosyncrasies might you need to sometimes sacrifice? What rules have you made up that you will not break for anything? In ministry, you often do what needs to be done--period!


Alexandre Dumas, the elder, ate an apple at 7 a.m. each morning under the Arc de Triumphe. Acquaintances recall James Russell Lowell removing and proceeding to eat with knife and fork a bouquet of flowers from the centerpiece at a literary supper in one of Boston’s great houses. Charles Dickens walked twenty to thirty miles a day. He also placed objects on his desk in exactly the same position, always set his bed in north/south directions, and touched certain objects three times for luck. Hans Christian Andersen put a sign next to his bed that read "I am not really dead."
