Calling anyone whose interested, I have a challenge for you. I guess that is slightly generic, but anyone can be involved. I have picked a book from my library that I have always wanted to read and thought it would be cool to read it together with some people. It would be a great book for pastors, church leaders, or any Christian to read. Here's what I am thinking:
"Throughout history, God has used revival to build and renew his church. A god-Sized Vision challenges you to remember God's work int he past and pray expectantly for God to send revival again today. 'Is it possible,' the authors ask, 'that we do not see God working in mighty ways because we don't ask him to work in mighty ways?' With this challenge in mind, the authors recount details of past revivals, beginning with biblical times and continuing through the Reformation, the Great Awakenings, the Welsh and Korean revivals, the East Africa Revival of the 1930's, and more recent revivals in the United States and China . . . With accessible language and fascinating examples, Hansen and Woodbridge explore these questions and more, strengthening your understanding of God's work while deepening your faith in the possibility of revival--right where you are."
Anyone up to read with me? Here is what I was thinking. I wanted to give you a chance to get the book. You can get it on AMAZON, CHRISTIANBOOK, or your local retailer. It is available on kindle or other e-book readers. So, you have enough time to get the book, my first post will be in two weeks, May 20th. Then each Friday after that, I would make a short post with my thoughts from the chapter and you would join in and share your thoughts.
Here is the schedule in case you want to join in. I hope you might choose to be stretched in this way. Accountability always helps us read better!
