The Lutheran Geek Two Truths and a Lie Blog Carnival

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!

Mmm, my guess is that you did not swim in the Sea of Galilee. I really have no clue, though!

Babybear Scraps said...

gosh, this is tough. Now I think mine is too easy. LOL. I think you did not get interviewed by an Argentina radio show.

Colleen said...

Liz... this is gooooood. I am going to guess that you were not interviewed by the Argentina radio show. For the record, this is a total guess.

darcie said...

I'm going with the swimming in the sea of Galilee - LIAR! HA!
I'm not sure...these are WAY harder than I thought!
And much more interesting than mine!!

Erin said...

I'm going to go with number 2 (As a Lutheran I've had to sit out communion at many a Catholic service in my day...), but it's obviously a total guess.

hibmom said...

Those are tough. I go with #2. Sounds like you do some exciting things!

DaisyGal said...

I think it's the communion in the Basillica. Hmmmmm.......

I actually believe you DID swim in the Sea of Gailee. :)

Beth said...

Sorry, Liz... I just didn't have time to be part of this, but I'm guessing #2.

No way did you take communion at a Catholic service ;) You *are* the Lutheran Geek!

Valerie said...

I'm going with being interviewed in Argentina. I should have a better idea of this, but really it's just a guess. I can't wait to find out the answer!

Emma said...

I'm guessing no on the radio interview. Fun idea for a blog carnival. Sorry I'm too swamped to participate myself!!

Kim said...

I totally think you are enough of a church rebel to say I'm a believer, Jesus loves me and that body was broken and blood spilled for me too, so I'm going to take communion, so, I don't think it is two. I am going to guess the radio show.

This is so fun, thanks for organizing!

Bonnie@TheFragileXFiles said...

I'm guessing #1 is the lie!

Lana D said...

I'm going to guess it was the Argentinian radio show. I would take communion in the Vatican, too. And I'm not Catholic either. :)

Jen said...

I'm guessing number 3...although all are super cool and exotic.

Kristen @ joyfullythriving.com said...

What a fun idea! Thanks for organizing! I'm going to guess...swimming in the Sea of Galilee?

kellybecko said...

I'm guessing the Argentine radio station is a no....but....hmmmm. They all sound possible. I'll need to read more of your blog to get a better idea :)

Soupy said...

I have no idea! LOL I have to say -- #3??????

Rebecca said...

I think you didn't really swim in the Sea of Galilee.

krisgetshealthy.com said...

I am gussing #1, but I don't know. But I am looking forward to getting to know you better! :D

krisgetshealthy.com said...

Robb, my guy says #2 is the lie. :) but wants to know the answer now... darn those MTV generation kids...oh wait...he is older than I am!

Barbara said...

Since you didn't take communion at my mom's funeral (although that would have been fine by me), and I know you've bee to Israel, I'm guessing it has to the radio show in Argentina. Although nothing you do could surprise me!

Jolene said...

I'm guessing #2 and if you did...I think that would be a miracle. LOL Thanks for hosting some fun!

Stephen T. McCarthy said...

I'm guessing that the lie is #2.

Ack, I should have known the Sea of Galilee would have been too cold. Funny, I don't see my guess on your list of comments, but I swear I wrote entered one...the radio station. Probably didn't hit submit.
