[W]e are having Carl Meaderis come and speak at Central on April 21-22 so I wanted to familiarize myself a bit with him. To do that, I read through the book Tea With Hezbollah written by Ted Dekker along with Carl. Carl is a Christian committed to serving Muslims.
In the book they tell the story of visiting some of the world’s most influential Muslim leaders and getting to know them a bit. They frame the book in the context of Jesus’ teaching about the good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). This is an interesting story to focus on given the specific encounters they write about.
There are many transcripts in the book of the actual questions and answers. They usually asked each leader what makes them laugh, and then asked them to tell a joke. This was in additional to a handful of other questions. But there was one question in particular that stood out to me:
“When was the last time you cried”?
