Instead, I ended up reading my first copy of Relevant magazine from cover to cover.
Jay Kim wrote a short, but poignant article titled Swimming in the Sacred in the Reject Apathy column.
His fourth and fifth paragraphs especially struck a chord for me. (Personally, though, I'd rather not comment on Brad's personal beliefs. Not my place. Although I do understand the point that Jay is trying to make.) :-)
If you like the article, you may want to also check out some of links to related articles. While I may not agree with every viewpoint expressed by the magazine, I admit that I love being challenged and forced to look at tough topics.
Oftentimes, God uses others to show me that the box I've been keeping Him in a box. The best way for me to grow in my faith in Him is through a good dose of reality and an extra large helping of His love and goodness.
By the way, I have since started devouring Tom's new book and all I have to say is "Wow."
God is SO good, and in Him, I am LIVING A BLESSED LIFE!
