Radical, Final Chapter

You know how sometimes, you read something, it inspires you to really make changes and then you may start procrastinating about when you will actually begin with the changes.

I DON'T want that to happen after reading Radical!  I have to say this has been a real roller coaster read, but I have really loved it!  It has stepped on my toes, made me feel like a selfish self centered person, and just plain hurt my feelings.  But not without showing me the way to make things right.

I don't feel like I have to change the world, I just have to start with making changes with myself.

I am so taking the challenge.!

I can pray for the entire world.

I can read through the entire word.

I can sacrifice my money for a specific purpose.

I can spend time in another context.

I can commit my life to a multiplying community.

While I know that I can do all of those things, I also know that doing them will take discipline and me really committing to making it happen.

I'm not sure which will be the most challenging for me.  I think the first two will just be getting into a routine of doing them, the last three will be more challenging.  But I am definitely doing them.

I have really enjoyed being a part of Marla's read a long!!
