Pastoral Musings from Rain City

it's about 'what is church?' it's about whether 'emergent' is the latest Christian trend or something more substantial. it's musing on what it means to live faithfully...in the city, in America, in community, intergenerationally, at this time in history...

A book I hope you'll like...


Well, it's finally happened. The book I wrote last summer, edited last fall, and signed off on in the winter, is IN STOCK at Amazon.com, and available in downloadable form very soon from "Conversant Life" a web community to which I belong as a contributor.

I must say that the writing was great fun, and the message I'm sharing through the book is deeply important. It's about things I speak of often at my church in Seattle; spiritual disciplines, kindgom living, creation theology, all rolled into the vast subject of creating a "Rule of Life", a more a less consistent set of practices that one seeks to build into life for the purpose of living more fully, and making Christ more profoundly visible.

I feel a little awkward with on the marketing side of things, but because I believe that the things I've written about in the book are so important, I'd be grateful if, after reading it, you might be willing to share a review on Amazon.

This summer, I'm starting work on another book, and again, am loving the writing piece. I hope you will find enjoyment in the reading piece.

Thanks...
