Day Off Replay: Power and Finesse (S5E13)

Surgery Is A Balance Between Power and Finesse

(Note: It’s Father’s Day, so I’m taking a day off! Here’s a helpful episode from last year, one of my favorites!)

So is life. 

Here are some musings on paradox, on baseball, on things that sound opposite but have to coexist, on how to be tender in a hard world.

Thanks to Jon Swanson for inspiration. Here’s Jon’s essential daily blog.

Scriptures mentioned

Romans 11:22

“Note then the kindness and the severity of God..”

Romans 8:35

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”

Isaiah 2:4
He will judge between the nations
    and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.

Joel 3:10
Beat your plowshares into swords,
and your pruning hooks into spears;
 let the weak say, “I am a warrior.”
