A Book Game

Brief updates before I get to the book game.

Eli's first birthday party was today. Pictures will be coming soon.

I will be in Lansing tomorrow helping the store there get organized.

I preach for the last time before our new pastor comes next Sunday, so you will be getting glimpses of my sermon throughout the week. I'm debating on which way to go right now. It might either be on healthy relationships (friendships) are necessary for the kingdom to shine or When we remove ourselves from God's will he lovingly accepts us back.


I ran across something similar on another blog. Here is the game. Find the book that you have most recently purchased or checked out from a library. Turn to page 82 (I came up with that number by randomly opening the book). In the comments write the name of the book, author, and the first full paragraph on page 82.

Here is mine.

The Barbarian Way by Erwin Raphael McManus

"If you are a follower of Christ and you have allowed yourself to be domesticated, you have lost the power of who you are and who God intends for you to be. You were not created to be normal. God's desire for you is not compliance and conformity. You have been baptized by Spirit and fire. Asleep within you is a barbarian, a savage to all who love the prim and proper. You must go to the primal place and enter the presence of the Most High God, for ther you will be changed by His presence. Let Him unleash the untamed faith within you."

Have at it and have a good day.
