We woke up to over 6 inches of snow this morning.
A few links to start with…
David Fitch had some questions for Brian McLaren about his book, Everything Must Change.
Mark Van Steenwyk announced John MacArthur’s “Nothing Must Change” Tour.
Best April 1 post here.
Somewhat related, but no joke, this short post from Fred Peatross, The Alzheimer Metaphor.
I guess I am not the only one who had trouble with the Easter Show Service.
Love this quote:
“The shack is a metaphor. It’s the place where you get stuck,” he said. “It’s the place you keep your secrets. We don’t go back there willingly.”
To extend that idea with a thought from Jonathan Brink, it also can become the place of healing:
“The shortest distance between you and your wholeness is through your obstacles.”
Wayne Jacobsen from Lifestream announced this exciting news:
They would like to help us take The Shack to level of distribution that we could not begin to duplicate here…and they also want to work with us to release some of Wayne’s titles at a wider level and to publish other books we feel have an important message to our culture…we’re amazed at how committed they were to the passion of this book and our other ideas to help people connect with the amazing love of the Father and think beyond the rigid lines of Christianity-as-religion in the 21st Century.
I am so glad that more of Wayne’s writing will be distributed as a result of the popularity of The Shack. There are links to some of Wayne’s material on my Recommended page. In my opinion, a person should read and listen to most everything that Wayne makes so freely available.
