Bill reading Running from a Crazy Man from Scargo Tower in MA

My readers long for the Jesus adventure. (If you haven’t found the Jesus adventure yet, you are, at least, curious.)

You’re a fascinating crowd of  Jesus-followers. You like to go deep with Jesus and that sometimes leads to miracles and sometimes to suffering. You’re serious about God but you don’t take yourselves seriously. You laugh more often than you cry and you cry a lot. Like me, God designed you to serve in and survive these times. We need one another.

You’ve followed Jesus for years. You love Him. You love His church – okay, love might be overstating what you feel for His church, especially after all these years – all you’ve experienced, but you’re trying to love His church because He loves His church. **Some of you are new to following Jesus, I know you’re there. Others of you aren’t too sure about Jesus yet, you’re welcome here, too. If I haven’t described you here, contact me or comment and let me know more about you!

You know your Bible. You’ve served in all kinds of ministries. There’s nothing passive about your faith. You’ve read the book of Acts and that’s what you want to see in your life. (okay, not the parts where Jesus-followers get beaten, arrested, thrown in prison, and driven out of town but all the other parts.)

Something has happened, though. Something hard. Something out of left field. Something ugly.

Church conflict. Betrayal. Other Christians hurt or disappointed you. You’ve suffered loss (not just one loss – you’re no lightweight, but a series of losses). Financial ruin. A loved one walked away from Jesus, entered addiction, suicide, a cult, a sinful lifestyle. Disease. Mental Illness. Whatever it was, it was big and it cut deep.

You’ve held onto your faith but sometimes you pull off to the side of the narrow road to catch your breath. (If you need prayer, Contact Me!)

You want to return to action. It looks to others as if you have but you know, deep in your soul where nothing hides from God, that you’re holding back.

Mary Ellen, reading Running from a Crazy Man, while grieving great loss.

You feel alone. You’ve started to lose heart but you don’t want to give up. You just want someone who “gets it” to invite you back into the adventure or to kick you in the pants in a way that shows they actually see what’s going on with you.

You would be more courageous, bolder for Christ if you only knew there were others who saw the same thing, who’d endured similar suffering, who pressed on despite their wounds, who were fighting as hard as you are to continue to love all the way to the end.

You belong here with us. This has been me and this is the people who subscribe to the blog or invite me to speak.

We have a little hobbit in us. We love comfort, routine, and home but Jesus knocked on our door, invited us into an adventure, and we joined Him. We know the story ends well but that doesn’t mean the journey is an easy one so we seek companionship to survive and thrive whatever we encounter on the narrow road

All we can do is decide what to do with the times we’ve been given.

We need you. Join the fellowship. Tell me more about YOU! You’re on my mind and in my heart as I write. I always want to know more.

This is where we’ll gather, share courage, comfort and challenge one another. We’ll spur one another on to love and good deeds. We’ll travel together to the great heart of God until He comes.
