the summer reading continues


i went to start the next book on my summer reading list: radical, by dr. david platt. i thought, clearly this is the best life choice: learn about radical love, learn about radical living in the context of community.

nope, bad life choice. after eight pages, i decided, (very likely that the Holy Spirit prompted me), to hold off until i had processed crazy love a titch more. so how will i be spending these lazy summer afternoons? reading a chance to die by elizabeth elliot. it is the story of amy carmichael, an m to india. she lived a radical life for the gospel.

i pray this book, rather, this woman's story will challenge me to live radically as well. i pray that i will be open and receptive to the Spirit as i read and am challenged. i pray that i will change.
