“Grace is the most perplexing, powerful force in the universe, and, I believe, the only hope for our twisted, violent planet.”
I had a wonderful night on Wednesday listening to J. John interview Philip Yancey. He is such an easy and interesting man to listen to. I think I have read almost all of his books and prescribe you reading 'What's so amazing about Grace?' at least once a year if only to read Babettes Feast story and the account of the prostitute. As an aside, I keep opening the Redeemer app just to read and remind myself of the gospel with the phrase 'Grace changes everything'. Try it and see.
I really recommend the Facing the Canon series to give to a friend, for your home group, youth team (especially the interview with Mike Pilavachi), leadership team or just for personal reflection and insight. Interviews with Matt Redman, Jackie Pullinger, Andrew White and others. A good option for those emergency 'what shall we do/study/watch this week' that we all have sometimes.
I can't stop singing and praying 'Help me find my own flame'. Pray it and sing it with and for me.
