Well, friends, I wrote a long and (I hope) interesting reflection on the “evening with Steve Garber” conversation from Friday night, and the Living Word Community Church Summit on Vocation and Work. Along the way, I note some books, old and new, and give the big picture of Steve’s journey, how we here so resonate with his vision and style, and then segue into a reminder of our role in the upcoming Jubilee 2011 conference in Pittsburgh. Since it’s a bit long, I posted it as the monthly column for February. I really, really hope you take a few minutes to read it.
Here is how it starts, with a sincere word of gratitude for prayers and supportive friends. We have been touched by the many prayers offered on our behalf. So, to start:
Thanks to those who read my face book plea a few days ago to pray for
our staff, our families, and the conversation we were hosting on Friday
with Steve Garber, author of Fabric of Faithfulness: Weaving Together Belief and Behavior (IVP; $16.00.) (See my hefty review of it here.)
It means a lot that so many folks—including those who order books
from us on line, even though we’ve never met—support our ministry, and
call upon God to bless and sustain us. There is some pain and hardship
on this end—where isn’t there?—and we are glad that friends care.
We are blessed.
The Garber event hosted at Living Word Community Church was fabulous…
Here are just a few of the book covers of titles I mention at the longer review. There’s a good discount deal over there, too, so check it out. And pass it on. Thanks for caring.
