Fridays on Faith

The next chapter is coming. This I promise. It's just so dang good and sweet, that it's hard to even put it into words.

Here are the first two chapters for those of you who are new to this story.
Chapter One.
Chapter Two.

In the meantime....let me tell you about something I've come across lately. It's a book called "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan. Now....I haven't read the bugger yet but I have it on my list. But, because I have become interested in it, I have found some quotes from his books and wanted to share them here for my Fridays on Faith series.

Here are few of them. Think about these. They are pretty much that.

Thought-provoking.

"God's definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love."
— Francis Chan (Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God)

"Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter."
— Francis Chan (Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God)

"We have to believe it enough that it changes how we live."
— Francis Chan (Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God)

"We don't get to decide who God is."
— Francis Chan (Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God)

"I believe He wants us to love others so much that we go to extremes to help them."
— Francis Chan (Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God)

Wow.

I've started Crazy Love. There's also a video to go with it to facilitate discussion on each chapter. We were reading it for our weekly Life Group. It started some interesting discussions for us.
