Hi friends!

  4. Sam Allberry, “Seven Myths About Singleness”


Absolutely loved Cover to Cover, can’t wait for next weeks podcast.
The ONE thing, ok 2 things:

  1. Over the last few years I thought I had done some pretty good house keeping in the self righteousness department but theough Saving Truth I see there’s much more to do, I’m working on it.
  2. Listen, carefully acknowledge the others persons words, asks questions, validate, listen some more and maybe validate some more, maybe ask some more questions before I ever think that what I have to say is more important than what I’ve just heard.

I don’t know if we’re supposed to rate and review the book and podcast, but I’m doing it anyway. If underlining and writing in margins is a way of talking to the author, then Abdu and I have had some pretty significant conversations. I recognized myself clearly in the
‘confusion’ group because he writes so clearly. He also built an awesome tribute to Jesus being truth that makes a workable way for me to leave the ‘confusion’ group and join the
‘clarity’ people. Thank you, Abdu. I am recommending this book to people in my church.
The podcast itself was a sort of practical follow-up to putting concepts into practice. Hearing Shaun and Ivy give examples of conversations they’ve had was sooooo helpful.
Thanks, Shaun and Ivy. And I thank the Holy Spirit, who was shining through the fog.
