My first re-telling of a Gospel story on the Western Seminary blog, and some secret insights into the names in the story

When I was in high school I had two friends named Andy Johnson and Roger Hom. I loved acting and theater, and for some reason (I can't remember if it was self-generated or if one of the guys made a throw away comment or what) I made a tradition my freshman year to always try to work their names into every play. Usually it would be in a crowd scene or something like that, where people were yelling and I could say, "ANDY JOHNSON ROGER HOM ANDY JOHNSON ROGER HOM!" So, when I was writing this re-telling of a familiar Bible story, I thought it would be fun to throw their names into the mix.

Now you now my deep, secret, arcane writing rituals.
