Greetings to my loyal blog readers! Kristyn, Aubri and I returned from Wilmington, VA last night after a quick vacation with family. It was restful, relaxing and truly enjoyable. You all likely remember that I received the opportunity to participate in Mark Battersons blog tour for his new book Wild Goose Chase. Unfortunately I received my copy of the book late and have been unable to read it to this point. It was my desire to post a review on the date of the books release (Aug. 19th) but for now I will leave you with the summary provided to me by Marks publisher as well as links where you can purchase his book online. Its a busy month but I will read it and review it fully by the middle part of September.
Most of us have no idea where we’re going most of the time. Perfect. “Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit–An Geadh-Glas, or ‘the Wild Goose.’ The name hints at mystery. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed. An element of danger, an air of unpredictability surround Him. And while the name may sound a little sacrilegious, I cannot think of a better description of what it’s like to follow the Spirit through life. I think the Celtic Christians were on to something…. Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: Adventure.” –from the introduction.
