Several years ago when I was in the Ukraine, they told me a story about a Russian Prince and his slave who were riding a dog sled in Siberia. Soon into their journey, they began to be chased by a pack of ferocious wolves. As much as they tried to outrun the wolves, they couldn’t. The wolves drew nearer and nearer and soon both men realized they wouldn’t be able to escape.
So, in great love, the servant threw himself off of the dog sled and sacrificed himself to the hungry wolves so his Prince would get away unharmed and survive. The servant died so the King could live.
As I listened to this story, one man said, “That’s a picture of the cross!”
To this, another man quickly responded, “No it isn’t. If that was a picture of the cross then the King would have thrown Himself off to save the slave. In the gospel, the King dies so the servants can live.”

My StagrammingGirls are my favorite kind of human. #dillivinAnd now our @cvcseagles students are hearing from & respectfully engaging with a bio-chemist/minister/Harvard-trained theologian/poet/lesbian on the things of faith. Kids are thinking deeply & doing great.Debriefing with @cvcseagles students after they interacted with a universalist & an atheist & right before they interact with Berkeley students about theological questions.#pennylanedill today you are 3 years old and our family is 3 years richer because of it. . You’re my joy and my delight. . . . #dillivinCelebrity sighting. Had to get a picture and an autograph. #bigfan #daisyjanedillDaisy has begun to make me crafts to decorate my classroom with. They have become my most prized possessions that bring me joy every time I look at them. I wonder if this is an analogy of how God sees our worship through Christ: pleased with great joy over our offerings because we are His beloved children (1 Peter 2:4-5; Heb. 13:15). #daisyjanedill
