I’m going to be interviewed today about fishing. Finally hit the big time!
Well, it is not a national inteview. It’s not even a regional interview. But it is an interview and it is about fishing.
They gave me a preview of the potential questions, either so I don’t stumble, or so when I do they can claim he knew these questions before the interview:
- How and why did you start fishing?
- What are some of the different bodies of water you’ve fished on? Have you fished on lakes? On the sea?
- Were you on one of these bodies of water and a bad storm came upon you?
- What’s it like to be out there on the water? What’s the satisfaction you get from being on the water?
- Were there times when you made mistakes fishing?
- Were there times when you didn’t catch any fish?
- What lessons have you learned from #5 and #6? Maybe you tell us about the famous story, about the kids and not catching any fish.
- How has being a fisherman prepared you in your Christian experience or do you see parallels?
The first couple were easy. We all know the answers we would give to those. Then the big ones hit. First, I have to admit to making mistakes. In front of people!
Then you want me to tell you the lessons from those experiences. Even tougher.
And finally, I need to tie it into my faith walk. Again, in front of people.
It won’t be taped. It won’t be on TV. You have to come to church and see it in person.
