There's No Time To Explain #26: Tim @GodsPlanDaily
I love the Twitter account @GodsPlanDaily. Here is the premise: If God is the author of everything that happens, he must be responsible for some of the most unfortunate days and bad ends met by the people of this earth. @GodsPlanDaily reveals God's plan for some unfortunate person each day. Is your fate laid out in today's tweet? You'd better hope not. It's a dark and hilarious voyage into the mayhem and chaos that is everyday life for some poor soul, somewhere on earth. I've been a fan of this twitter account for a while and check back from time to time to make sure I don't miss a single one. I reached out to the anonymous author of this account to find Tim, a school teacher from Texas who takes the task of speaking for God very seriously and who doesn't seem to think much of being at the helm of a Twitter account with 42k followers. We talk about the inspiration for the tweets and his view of religion as expressed by them. We talk about having kids, making music, and his background growing up in a religious family. Our conversation starts at 11:20. I rant about my daughter's first day at Kindergarten and she tells me some terrible jokes.
