Bobbing Along -vs- Rowing Forward

Posted in Cannonball at 11:15 PM by alexlozada

I understand the point of the contrast between the corks bobbing in water -vs- rocks making waves in Wednesday’s Cannonball reading, but the contrarian in me is not thrilled with the imagery of rocks sinking to the bottom after they make the big splash 😉

Instead, I picRoman galleyture the contrast between the aimlessly bobbing cork -vs- the Roman war-galley splashing forward with the combined power of the wind-driven sail and the splashing oars of the rowers. The massive ship makes waves and makes forward progress, unlike the sinking rock 🙂

The Cannonball reading challenged me to go against the tide of culture, and tell a friend my plan. There are Christ followers who inspire me by their stand against popular culture, from football players to college professors. Time to row forward, and make some waves!
