So the other night just before bed I was thinking of that ice breaker game - Two Truths and a Lie. You know the one where you share three "facts" about yourself but one of them is untrue. Then people have to guess which one is the lie. And I thought that it had great potential for a fun blog carnival where we could hop from blog to blog guessing and meeting new people. And so the Two Truths and a Lie Blog Carnival was born. I invite you to play along. You can link up below (email me and I can share the link html with you as well).
So without further ado my three "facts:"
1. I was interviewed on a radio show in Argentina. TRUE! I was down in Azul, Argentina on a church mission trip. We supported a church-run daycare for low-income families down there and the pastor and I were interviewed on the local radio talking about our trip and our mission and how education differs in America from Argentina.
2. I took communion at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican even though I am not Catholic. TRUE! Though my parents don't remember me taking communion, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. In many Catholic services I don't partake if I am worried about offending someone but how often are you at worship in St. Peter's Basilica. We even stayed after service to see Pope John Paul II wave from the window at noon.
3. I have been swimming in the Sea of Galilee. FALSE! I did stick my toe in the Sea of Galilee but it was too cold as it was January. A few folks went swimming but I didn't. We did go swimming in the Dead Sea a week or so later!
So which one is the lie? Take a guess in the comments. And then play along on your own blog, link up and hop around the blogs to get to know each other better. We will reveal the correct answers on our original posts on Monday February 28th so stop back to see if you were right!
