Visit Sansone's Gifts for Families

A Word of Clarification

Saturday, April 01, 2006

I received a lot of hits yesterday due to our little "Happy 19th Birthday Roast" of Scott Anoil. I think that most people who came here via SharperIron or from one of the other guys in the little link or from Scott's blog are aware of a couple of factors that some of my other readers (including some folks from my church, family members and people I know from other places) are probably unaware. SOOO, I wanted to make a couple of quick comments for the few of you who do fit in that category. I know it can be frustrating at times to be on the outside of an inside joke.

1. Scott Anoil is an Assistant Pastor in Illinois whose blog focuses primarily on the issue of Christian music and culture. I have never met him personally, but I have come to respect much of what he writes.

2. Scott is not 19 years old. He is really 26. So, no, he did not write the hymn that we use for Communion as an 18 year old. He is a prodigy of sorts, but not that much of a prodigy.

3. Yes. Scott really was in that picture of the children's choir - at the top. And yes, as far as I know, those are relatively recent pictures of Scott and he really does look like he is only 19 (or 16 of so), even though he is older than that.

4. If you did not go by and see Chris Anderson's addition after the main roast was over, you should go there. Chris has some great pictures (although the pop culture reference escapes me - I am guessing it is from some movie that I have not seen).

5. The obviously marked up picture with the leather jacket, etc. is menat to be a joke. Neither Scott, nor myself or anyone else who was part of this little "surprise" for Scott, would wear anything close to that picture.

Just my (hopefully clarifying) thoughts,
