FAITH AND LOVE
My title probably doesn't make sense with the photo of my kiddo...but it will. I couldn't find the picture of my pastor holding her on the day she was Christened. Pastor Jon, long gone from our old church, as are we, is still my spiritual guider. I go to him in confidence and trust that he will lead me in the right direction. He is an amazing man who tells the truth and sometimes the truth ruffles comfortable peoples' feathers. I know he's ruffled mine a time or two, but I know what he is says is right and he says it because he wants me to be a better Christian and person. Please don't be offended if you aren't Christian. I expect you aspire to be better in the eyes of your Lord too.
Pastor Jon's book, HOW TO SAVE YOUR DYING CHURCH, is not just for churches, although that is what he would like...He'd like small struggling churches to read this in Sunday School and see if they can get a message from it and help their church bring more disciples to Christ. For me reading it, it helped me see some of my shortcomings and some of my strengths.
Don't let the plain cover fool you! It's set up like the standard church bulletin. The lessons in it are well worth the read and then discussing with a friend or in fellowship. I am giving away a copy to one lucky reader on February 22nd. Please spread the word.
Pastor Jon White's book HOW TO SAVE YOUR DYING CHURCH can be purchased at http://www.amazon.com/How-Save-Your-Dying-Church/dp/1516863615/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455216474&sr=8-1&keywords=how+to+save+your+dying+church
LOVE AND CHARITY
I love this woman! Robyn Campbell is the most caring, passionate woman around and if you don't know you...you must have just gotten your first computer last week. Don't worry she will find you!
Robyn gives so much to the writing community. She is always helping others and reaching out to people. She home schools her children and her son Christopher has Sturge-Weber Syndrome. He has so many battles in his life and she keeps on fighting for him.
One of the amazing things she has done is compile an anthology called KISSED BY AN ANGEL and all the proceeds go to the foundation. The book is LOVELY! It is full of beautiful uplifting stories about children who find a special gift of sorts within themselves. The book is appropriate for children aged 8 to 12, but I believe anyone with a gentle heart would love this book. And if you like short stories that's another plus!
I'll be giving away a copy of KISSED BY AN ANGEL on February 25th.
FAITH, CHARITY, and LOVE...
I love Jon and Robyn. Please help me help them share their books with the world. Just hitting the tweet my post button may bring more people here and give them more exposure...Sharing on Facebook would be great too. I'm not so good at the fancy helicopter thing.
In your comment tell me which book you would be interested in. I'll put your name in an extra time if you tell me you Tweeted my post and another time for putting it on Facebook. (I'll trust you.) And yes, because I'm old school...I will be putting names in two jars and drawing from them on the 25th.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR SHARING ABOUT MY FAITH, CHARITY & LOVE POST!
