My theme or guiding principle for 2012 continues to develop. I went to our public library and found a book while browsing the shelves entitled “Pray Big.” It’s not a deep book, but it’s calling me deeper, challenging my thinking and my practice of prayer.
On Christmas Sunday I offered to help team teach our adult Sunday School class. I’m going to use this material. I’ll be sharing more specifics from the book later. What I can tell you now is that it’s not the kind of book I can race through. I’m reading it much more slowly than I normally read books and taking notes, and not just because I plan to teach from it. I’m doing a lot of self-examination and a lot of praying…and weeping. I’m quite excited for the growth.
