It’s Not The End Of The Book.

December 15, 2010 | 7 comments

I once wrote these words on a slip of paper and tucked them in my Bible: “Keep reading. It’s not the end of the book.”

I guess I needed a reminder that despite my sufferings, the story wasn’t over. I needed to offer myself a pep-talk, a reminder that God can be trusted, and that there really is a Happily-Ever-After.

I’m telling the rest of the story today over at Bible Dude’s place.

Bible Dude, a friend and colleague from The High Calling, is hosting a group-writing project over at his place. Together, we’re journeying through “The Story of God, the Story of Us” by Sean Gladding.

And a hearty congratulations to Mr. Gladding! His book was listed on the Top 10 Books of 2010 by Relevant Magazine this month.

We’d be delighted to see you at Bible Dude’s place.

Photos taken during a High Calling retreat at Laity Lodge in Texas this fall. Bible Dude and Getting Down With Jesus with a #fistbump! … And canoeing down the Frio River.

    SWEET! Well your post for today's chapter in the project was AMAZING, but now you throw in the #fistbump at Laity Lodge and the canoe ride down the Frio? Dang dude…

    But what's funny about you sharing those photos is that that retreat is kinda like having those fireplace discussions. I love how we all wrestled with God and our stories during that time… stories that we are only in the middle of.

    "Pull in closer to the fire" love that line. That's what you do with your words. We all lean in. Loved the post of Dan-o's blog

    Love the photos. Can we go back? In January?

    Never enough lambs…you just made me think of my nativity a bit differently today. They came in a pack of 5, and I thought "too many." Now, I think "too few."

    I love canoeing down the Frio. My favorite trip ever was down at Echo, with my son.

    I love that idea, write a special note to yourself and keep it in the bible to remind yourself that daily reading is the most important priority!
