I love that so many of you keep sending me comments about how Finding Church is impacting you and pictures of where you are reading it. Let me share one comment here and three pictures that puts the book in some interesting locations. What I love most, however, is how this book is connecting with people and their own stories, giving language to their own experience of looking beyond the walls of our “church” structures to see Jesus’ hand in the reality of their lives as it did with Christina:
I started reading your new book last night and I cannot out it down. I am into my fifth year outside the church walls and this is an answer to prayer. I feel like it came at just the right time. Not that I was wanting to give up on my faith or walk away for Jesus but boy I have felt crazy at times as people come to me wondering what happened and why did I walk away from “it all.” Thank you a million times over.
In fact the walking away from “it all” has led to the most amazing adventure in marriage and parenting and grand parenting I could have never imagined. As well as connecting into genuine authentic community. I sat on a park bench today with a new friend who lives behind me and I shared so naturally about this book I am reading—Finding Church, she just lit up and in agreement with what Jesus came to give. I could go on and on but I will spare you and leave you with another heartfelt thank you, thank you for this book, for sharing your journey and for your gentle Christ like way of putting into words what so many of us are feeling.
And now some other places this book has been:
