Preaching at Virginia Tech. Dr. Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary, reviews a fascinating series of responses to the Virginia Tech tragedy. Telling, indeed.

Dining with Shamu

Last month my daughter and I visited Sea World in San Diego, California. (If you want to see a short video clip I made of one of the rides at Sea World, check out this YouTube link.) On the recommendation of my sisters, Kara and I enjoyed “Dining with Shamu.” We had lunch only a few feet away from several killer whales. The lunch was a surprisingly tasty buffet. And the best part, in addition to being so close to the whales, was getting to hear the inside scoop from the trainers, who were also willing to answer any questions we might have.

If you’re ever planning a trip to Sea World, I’d encourage you to save your dollars for a “Dining with Shamu” experience.  It’s not cheap. The cost per person was around $35. But the quality of the food and service, combined with the chance to see the whales from only a few feet away, made the cost worthwhile. Most importantly, my daughter loved it!

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
