Out of the Miry Clay




During our son Glenn Jr's freshman year of college, we attended the family weekend. We arrived at the opening session of the event and were directed to park on a field near the building that was turned into temporary parking because of the large number of cars. I remember thinking that the field seems pretty wet from the rain the night before but we parked the minivan and went to the parent session.


David Crowder was the main event that night and we had a change in plans that left us needing one additional ticket to the concert. We snuck out of the parent session a few minutes before it ended so that we could zip over to the concert venue and purchase a ticket before they sold out.


We got to the car and were horrified to find out that our tires were getting stuck in the soft ground and we could not get out of our parking spot. Glenn senior hopped out of the car and told me to turn the wheels and rock the car back and forth as he was pushing from behind to try to get us moving in the field.
