From time to time, I come across a book that just sums up my thoughts perfectly. After I read it, I want to buy 10 copies and hand them off to all my friends. Alas, this is one of them Good Reads.
More Jesus Less Religion – Moving from Rules to Relationship
by Stephen Arterburn and Jack Felton
I really liked this book because it brings you back to the core of our spirituality – it is really just about God and you. That is what’s Christianity is all about. It’s not really about what we do. It’s not about the survival or continuing the organization or ministry. It’s not about other people. At the very center, it is about you and God going through life together. As plain as that. Stephen and Jack takes us back to that simple starting point. Do you feel burnt out with church? with life? Or do you feel like the odd man (or woman) out in your church group? Does it ever feel like God doesn’t give a penny about what’s happening in your life? Give this book a try. It may shed some light on where your journey has gone off, and give a fresh perspective that will restore joy and hope again.
