The book listed above is this great read that I just finished.
We’re going to be reading it as a church and in our small groups. I’ve decided to post a few of the thought provoking, provocative, and otherwise interesting passages from the book.
“Little Emily looks cute in her souvenir shirt that proclaims “My parents went to Florida and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.” But there’s something sad about it. Emily missed out on the journey… as I’ve gone to church and met Christians and lived as one, I’ve realized something.
We are all Emily.
When I read about the lives of the first Christians in the New Testament, I see people who actually went “on vacation to Florida” who truly experienced the ups and downs of the trip. But when I look around at Christians today, I see people who just wear a T-shirt for a journey they missed out on.”
I’d love to hear what people think of this passage and the book!!!
