This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Looks Like A Great Book

I just happened to come across a blurb on this book today.  I know nothing about it really, but in light of the deep discussion on Kristi's blog Sunday (the theological one, not the potluck one), I'm thinking it might be a good read for several of us.  Some reviewer called it the best book they'd ever read.  I briefly looked at the website and it certainly sounds intriguing.  It deals with meeting God in the truly horrible things of life.

Back to work.

I haven't read it yet, but I've had two different people ask me if I've heard of it or read it. When I said "no" they said "You will." If you read it, let me know what you think!

Our executive pastor, Bob Ewing, has a copy which he kindly loaned me.

He loved it!

AND it's only 248 pages long!

I'll keep you posted, Jen!

What's WITH me and exclamation points?!?!?!?!

Hey Don.

I've read it. Very interesting. I enjoyed viewing the trinity in new ways. I think you have to overlook some typical cliche christianese if you will, but i think there are some great nuggets. Enjoy. Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thanks for your comment, Rachel...

I had about 45 spare minutes this afternoon, so I started reading it.

I got 55 pages read in a flash. I feel like it's going to be a top-notch read, even though it deals with a subject that has always scared the socks off of me since the day Kristi was born. I didn't realize it was a true story when I saw the blurb.

I'm thrilled that my children are grown, but now I realize I have to start worrying about my grandchildren!

Nevertheless, I think the book is going to be full of those "nuggets" you mentioned. This William Young is quite a writer. Can't wait to get further into it.
