challenging my thoughts and actions

"For even if the whole world believed in resurrection, little would change until we began to practice it. " - Shane Claiborne Irresistible Revolution

This book is not for the faint of heart. It is not for the person that is perfectly comfortable in their relationship with God and has no desire to know Him in a deeper way. It is all about being uncomfortable in our complacency. It's all about how we live happily in our houses full of stuff when almost 3 quarters of the world barely has clean water to drink or food to eat(more great posts on this from a favorite blogger). We are constantly thinking about our next purchase while many have no place to sleep at night. Some of these people are just a miles away from our very front doors.
I highly recommend it. I'm in the middle of it right now. Trying to read it slowly to really take in all that is being said. It's definitely challenging my thoughts and actions right now.
