Another good read
LIVING DOWN HYPOCRISY BY LIVING OUT THE FAITH
By Tod Bolsinger
I am almost finished this book and it has proven to be an interesting read. A lot of fresh thought and a lot of really good ideas and I found it an encouraging read about how as Leighton Ford puts it...."how Christ can show through you in a 'show me' world."
Interesting information from the internet mentioned in the book.
The Declaration of Independence: 1,300 words
The Gettysburg Address: 286 words
The Ten Commandments: 179 words
The Lord's Prayer: 66 words
God so loved the world: 5 words
I forgive you: 3 words
I love you: 3 words
The United States government regulation on the sale of cabbage: 26,911 words
American author, obviously but I didn't have time to convert to a Canadian flavour. The message comes through loud and clear though eh? "Less is better, sometimes."
The author states, "Faith that makes a difference is a simple subject, but it's not an easy one".
More tomorrow on this read.
