Ice Cream for the Soul

Rob Bell just released a new video entitled Rediscovering Wonder.

It’s typical Rob Bell. He walks down an unassuming back alley. He speaks as if it isn’t scripted. He uses his body to express what he is thinking. There aren’t a lot of scriptural references. Some may even say it is annoying.

It’s also brilliant. He brings a fresh feeling to everything. It’s nothing new. He has stated many times that he is not trying to add to what has gone before.

But his gift is that he makes it feel like the first time you have heard it. Like the first time a kid tries ice cream. For some it’s too cold and they don’t know what to make of it. For others they just want more. Then they want to try different flavours.

Rob Bell is icecream for my soul. I want to rediscover God when I watch or read or hear him speak.

I hope you do too.


Although now all I want is to make a trip to Morellis.
